Derrick Hodge’s Advice For Young Musicians
I happened to come across these wise words from bassist Derrick Hodge while checking out some of the latest albums from 2013. Firstly, I must say that Derrick released an album for Blue Note Records called Live Today in August 2013 which blends a lot of his influences from jazz, gospel, classical, hip-hop, funk, etc. More importantly, I really feel that Derrick Hodge is a great example of a musician who works extremely hard at his craft so that he can be the best that he can be.
