Here we are at Humphrey’s Backstage after Winning Best Hip Hop Band award at the SDMusic Awards in 2004
While producing music for the OB Cooperative Records record label I was introduced to the amazing artist “Pato Banton” by the leader of Psydecar; Tim Pacheco. Pato was inspired by our free spirited approach to recording music and wrote the lyrics for “Stay Positive” while at the studio. We loved the song so much we brought the best musicians in to complement the song.

When I was a kid I bought a cassette at Thrifty’s because it had Drumsticks on Velvet.
That album is “The Best of Billy Cobham” and had the song’s; Pleasant Pheasant, Stratus, Red Baron, and such incredible drumming, truly inspirational.
Here is my old band playing my arrangement of “Red Baron and Stratus”

even though the quality is not high, I just love the interaction with the musicians,

In this world of Text Messages and Emails it is too easy to be misunderstood.
The smallest error can spiral you out of control and the momentum can carry you further than you can possibly see (Think Jet or Spacecraft 🙂
My tips for better communication are:
#1. Be Clear and Direct in your Statements.
Emotions and Speculation can be mistaken for “Why did you do this to me”, or “Why is this happening to me?”, Neither one is helping to remedy the situation and can distract you too the point of frustration.
Like a Doctor or a Tech, I prefer to know what are the symptoms, errors and or desired result is.
This way I can make a proper diagnoses and/or recommendation
Not really, I have seen it so so many times I had to write about it.
Be careful of your actions because Momentum can carry further then you can possibly see
