During my first audition for Berklee Global Jazz Institute I was star struck. Walking into the BGJI office, Danilo Perez, Marco Pignataro, and John Pattituci sat at a table in the corner of the room. The first time I had heard Danilo Perez was at the Blue Note in New York City with Jack DeJohnette’s band a few years earlier. Sitting behind him that evening I was convinced he had something similar to the powers of Storm from X-Men. With the rhythmic integrity and harmonic colors he played with it seemed like he could crack open the sky with thunder and rain or cause the sun to come out at will. Pattituci’s rich bass sound and the grooves he creates with Brian Blade on records like Wayne Shorter’s ‘Beyond the Sound Barrier’ are something friends I played with used to imitate as best as they could.

My musical journey has been full of surprises, and a lot of them being meeting great people who’ve helped open doors for me. Especially to higher levels of learning. Looking back where I came from, it looked highly impossible, that a kid who grew up in the townships of Tembisa (Johannesburg- South Africa). Would end up here at Berklee College of Music. Among some of the best your musicians from around the world. Also a college with some of the best teachers in the world.

As I started building my Berklee Music Network Portfolio last night, I couldn’t help but notice how many things I’ve been able to experience since I moved to Boston a year and half ago. Berklee has many students who are in constant movement: singing, recording, arranging and just pretty much everywhere all the time and so other students, including me, tend to perceive that they’re not doing enough sometimes.
