Thread Name: Nice Compliments that you have had
Subject: RE: Nice Compliments that you have had
One of the most memorable I've had, from a very good musician that I'd worked with, was that I had 'big ears'. He was a beautiful example of that himself, acutely aware that, for the practitioner, music is more about listening than playing. Playing with people like that is absolutely magical: it's as you were communicating by telepathy and what you are playing together becomes greater than the sum of the parts.
