My teacher (1980-1982), the late Greg Coleman, had another passion besides music and guitar: mountains and technical climbing in California's Sierra Nevada. His "Yosemite Suite" is a brilliant musical painting of his favorite places in Yosemite. He was the son of jazz and session great, Budd Coleman, one of the original "Tijuana Brass." Greg was pointed in the right direction by his dad and studied with some greats: Fred Noad, Pepe Romero, Jose Tomas, Joe Pass. Greg's son successfully petitioned UC Irvine to award him his MA in music posthumously after his untimely death in 2005. He has made a few of his dad's scores available to some of his students. I was fortunate to receive copies of some original scores and arrangements this week and am enjoying his 1997 album now "Sarabande of the Distance. "

All this time I thought I was making music; it was making me.
