AFRO-AMERICAN MUSIC INSTITUTE CELEBRATES 36 YEARS
Pain Relief Beyond Belief
"Nocturno," written and performed by Eric Kloss. "Profiles of Eric Kloss and Pat Martino," a mini-documentary by Lee Griffith.
Eric Kloss's father, who headed up the Pittsburgh Institute for the Blind, used to take this blind 12-year-old white kid to the Crawdord Grill which was a favorite hangout of mine . He was so far advanced that it was not unlike the reaction more recently that I had to Joey Alexander. How could such a young person have absorbed so much and already be improvising the way the much older great players did. I have many of Eric's vinyl recordings but his later playing went far beyond my limited musical understanding. Bob Garvin
