Real Jazz Program Director Mark Ruffin gets to crux with Roy Guzman after the band’s broadcast recording at Sirius XM. Leo Brouwer, Wes Montgomery, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Scofield, Metheny, and the Berklee in Puerto Rico program; they all came up.
I’m reminded of the line from Dylan’s “When I Paint My Masterpiece” — “on a plane ride so bumpy that I almost cried.” The air is choppy, the seat is flexing, and I’m thinking about how great the last 17 years at Berklee have been. And how much I don’t want them to end here, above the Maryland countryside, in an Airbus.
