    anticipated when I tried to sight read the music with the notation moving at full speed. I decided I would take the song note by note and learn how to play the music that way. I would advance the video far enough to see the next couple notes. I would then play from a starting point and go as far as I could. Eventually, I made it through the entire song and had the whole song memorized. From this point forward, I relied on sound and memory to play the song. I used muscle memory to play the song and commit it to memory so that playing the song seemed natural to me. I would hum the song in my head and…

He was a singer, musician, and composer. He is one of the most influential influences in Jazz music still today.
