Jimmy Raney speaks again! on Youtube

It's a great pleasure to present pieces of Jimmy's marvelous 1993 master class to the world, finally. Those who enjoyed the first video a little while back will enjoy this one as well. As per usual, it's not just about music, but rather the thoughts and insights of deep human being with understandings of things that most of us have to catch up with. As always a breath a fresh air. Again there are analogies made between language and music as I alluded to in follow up comments on the previous blog. Using your ear and learning from people who do it well is the key. Pay attention to what he says about transcription and playing solos on your instrument.

You can watch it here or get a little better view at the youtube link below it.
