This is a YouTube video of “Be Bop” – Zane Musa’s Alto Saxophone Solo Transcription – we lost a bad young cat this month. I discovered Zane’s music by being friends on MySpace (remember that place). I listened to his rendition of “All Blues” there and was blown away by his musical spirit. Some cats are “well schooled” and have lots of technique and tons of licks they’ve practiced. Zane was one of those players whose music was organic to his being, as much as being from something he learned technically. Those players work hard like Charlie Parker did, and when they realize who they are, we all benefit. Peace, Zane Musa. The world is a less bright place now that you have moved on to the next dimension, bro. Thanks, Cb
