As I had stated earlier this week I had a day of silence for a friend of mine who was a phenomenal musician. Unfortunately he has taken his life. I will never forget the first time I met him. He eyed me with skepticism. He was sharp as a tack, had a razor wit, and very rarely held other people in any regard. If he liked you it was because you weren’t stupid. I remember when Jeff came to me and told me that Marcel thought very highly of me. That was a cool day for me.
A another group of friends has created a video tribute to Marcel.
Today’s song choice is one of my favorite Talisman songs. A fantastic bassist has left us. Fortunately we have recordings that capture his spirit. If you’re a lover of a specific instrument I really believe you’ll do well to explore Marcel’s playing. He certainly has a lot of recordings out there. He’s played with some amazing musicians.
