Tuli Can't Stop Talking

These are just my thoughts on contemporary issues and an attempt to open up a dialogue.

So, speaking of “Back in the Day.”

That would be in the Seventies and they would be: Eric Gale, Cornell Dupree, Richard Tee, Steve Gadd and my neighbor Gordon Edwards. They were regular entertainment at Mikkells and everyone from Ralph MacDonald to Stevie Wonder and even Bill Cosby joined with them. Phyllis Hyman was a regular there also. It was back when Jazz and Cross-Over was King. It was “Musical Nirvana.”

And they sure could “Groove.” Stuff was a group of the BEST “Studio Musicians” in the World. And I was lucky enough to experience them nightly. Not to mention Phyllis singing standards. How young everyone was then.

What ever happened to Creed Taylor and CTI Records speaking of Cross-Over?

Yes, I am feeling nostalgic!
