Make Your groove Happen Workshops
"Make Your Groove Happen!"

“Jerry never does anything just because it’s right to do, he likes to do it because it feels good. He would come up with things that fit…Quincy Jones has a way of working with people where he’ll get them together and say ‘Okay, get into something. Jerry was the same way….Jerry was very concerned”.
