One time when my music theory professor was a student in college, he had to accompany an extremely rude soprano for a recital. She treated him like dirt during rehearsals. Just before going on to perform, she made some really snide remark to him that ticked him off, so he transposed the piece up a half step. She cracked three times.

Always be nice to your accompanists, folks.

A Tribute to vibraphonist Roy Ayers featuring The Robert Glasper Experiment, Pete Rock, and Stefon Harris on vibes. This shit is amazing, got some vocoder in there! Stefon just got pulled into our local jazz festival to fill in for Regina Carter as guest artist and we’re about to rehearse with him. These next couple days are going to be unreal!
