alexskolnick Perfect photo to follow the last one.. Yesterday at Make Music Day, Union Square, my acoustic Planetary Coalition set was followed by a jam of up & coming players including these two that had me sign their guitars and who - w 7 years of experience each (at just 12 yrs old!) - can really play!! Watch out! #NextGeneration 3w

I'm just about finished reading your autobiography and would've loved to have met and talked to you about it. I loved it, you did a great job with it. I've always admired you and your musically career. I've been fortunate to have seen you many times in various musical formats. 1mon

alexskolnick Spent a fantastic afternoon at the unveiling of Miles Davis Way (77th & W. End) on what would have been Miles' 88th Bday, w his kin & colleagues (true music royalty). One awkward moment: at the announcement of the "reveal," they tried to remove the paper sign-cover but the string broke, leaving things in limbo. Thanks 2 this quick thinking (& in shape) Miles fan for seizing the day & turning an awkward moment into a triumphant one! 2mon
  •   mitchansan Would you tell me why is that place? Has he lived there? It was a perfect day today! 2mon

  •   alexskolnick ..Dave Leibman, Buster Williams, jimmy Heath, Victor Bailey. Honored to be asked there among folks inspired my Miles - incl. Will Calhoun (Living Colour), Steve Smith Got recognized by a few but there were so many musicians of many generations/genres all in tribute to Miles. Great Memorial Day. 2mon
