I remember meeting jazz great Jimmy Bruno about 20 years ago. His trio was playing at a small cafe in Philadelphia and I was the guest of a friend who was one of his students. After an amazing set, he walked up to me and I was introduced by my friend. Jimmy gave a very warm handshake and said “I’ve heard a lot about you and was wanting to meet you!”
Sometimes, it’s good to look back and appreciate your blessings. I’m proud to have had my experiences as a guitarist and have people like Jimmy Bruno as excited to meet me as I was to meet him.
