really want to attend this. toured with a phenomenal clarinetist from poland through france and the great louis sclavis held one of these music seminars in montpelier. i grew up listening to mr. trucks, as well as dannie richmond and mingus, elvin, miles, and eric dolphy. the slip and frogwings are brilliant as well. check out a band called ronald shannon jackson and the decoding society. shannon jackson had played with albert ayler and ornette coleman. he formed this band with vernon reid ( pre living colour) melvin gibbs on fretted bass and rev. bruce johnson on fretless bass! two drummers? check out the double bassists! seriously have learned so much from mr. trucks and mr. burbridge. god bless. r.
Hope to see you there!

well good to hear from you Butch - this sounds like fun, you, Oteil and Luther and Cody - very cool - great to see ABB for the Crossroads lineup also - NYC in April !!!! hope to hear more soon on Beacon, Moogis etc....
Butch, I think this is great and hope that you continue to offer this type of instruction and interaction for years to come. It's a great way for musicians and fans to interact with their musical heroes and learn from the best. hope it goes swimmingly. sully
Sully- I'm looking forward to this unique and what I expect to be exciting experience. Music Masters Camp just released a video about the facility on YouTube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sgs6840mcM4Check it out-
recently read an old article about tom dowd. in it he stated that butch trucks was " an amazing drummer, capable of playing melody, harmony, and rhythm." very high praise indeed! just thought you should know about that.
A great timekeeper he is, as evidenced on the album "A Evening with ..."
You need to get and watch this DVD, The Language of Music:http://www.thelanguageofmusic.com/Tom Dowd was a true genius.
I think the aforementioned article was in international musician and recording world. Which unfortunately, went out of print in 1991.
