    Default R.I.P Mike Longo

    Mike Longo was the musical director for the Dizzy Gillespie Quintet

    A big part of Mike Longo's mission was to reestablish the apprenticeship relationship in teaching jazz. He says "I know jazz education is an important thing and I know that the field means well, but there seems to be a trend in that field to teach jazz where people are actually copying off recordings instead of actually learning to play jazz. The apprenticeship aspect of jazz has always been the way it has evolved."

    Search the Forums for "Dizzy”. There are many charts.
