    Fascinating interview with such a modest musician who is a phenomenal player. His reference to studies with Laurie Frink interests me, as I have been working from her book, ‘Flexus’ since the beginning of this year. Just viewed Stevie Wonder Grammie Awards 2015 CBS video and noticed RR playing trumpet. Superb.
