“I grew up in New York, on 110th Street…. I heard all kinds of music growing up. I started playing the bass when I was 11 years old and whatever music touched my soul, I wanted to participate. Early on it was Miles, Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, Count Basie – I listened to it all.”
– Eddie Gomez, Puerto Rican legendary Grammy winning musician.
