Re: Tribute to Frank
Larry, I think of Frank when I hear some well-performed big band music; those of you who came on board after he passed away may not know that he loved big band music and was himself a skillful drummer with a band of his own.
And, although we never got together to add some Latin beats to his music, we came to respect and admire each other for what we had done in our musical journeys. And Frank had such a sense of discipline in his musical and personal affairs, it's one of the many reasons his signature became part of mine...
Frank, we love ya, man...and we remember...
keep the beat goin' ... Don't keep it to yourself!
"If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away." --Henry David Thoreau, "Walden," 1854
"There's a lot to be said for Time Honored tradition and value." --In memory of Frank "fiacovaz" Iacovazzi
"Maybe your drums can be beat, but you can't."--Jack Keck
