MFM Public Musicians Forum No. 7 @  Upper West Side Yeoryia Studios | New York | New York | United States

Musicians – we have to stop being so proud of being “very independent” and realize that: We are not alone. We are connected as in group of jazz musicians or, just group of musicians. Like it or not …… it has been the “negative stigma” placed on us as a “group”. Therefore, it is necessary for us to “join together” ….for our own good. To end: let us learn how to support each other!
Wouldn’t that be great … after being taught to “fight and compete with each other?”

– Billy Harper
