G's Way are fantastic in capital letters - what a vivid reverence to seventies funk/jazz and fusion, and finally some musicians who pay tribute to the often neglected sounds of the peerless Deodato. My favorite track would be "Escapade" right now. Thanks for the tip. Definitely among my albums of the year.

Looking forward to the book, Marc - it's an interesting approach and I'm curious to see what events (and why) you chose.

I can't imagine that you won't be on the book reading/signing circuit - see you there.

You're already noted on my reading list, Mr. Meyers. Certainly the origin of any music isn't thinkable without the sociological context.
Good luck with your book!

Congratulations on the book deal!! I look forward to it.


Congratulations Marc!

Marc, there is probably nothing more musically disingenuous to shove in an old drummer's ears than an electronic drum track accompanied by a computer-generated bass line.

Which is why I find your G's-Way send-up an insult to my years.


I'll pre-order the book now, Marc! It's been a long wait...
