Episode 29 – Interview – Joel Rosenblatt

This week the Groovecast is delighted to publish an exclusive interview with Joel Rosenblatt. Most of you know Joel from his work with Michel Camilo and later with Spyro Gyra. In this episode we discuss his early flirtations with trumpet and a chance encounter with drums. From there we get to his college studies with Ed Soph and Randy Jones which helped prepare him for his first major gigs. We then cover the gigs with: Matt Murphy, Pure Prairie League, Michel Camilo, and Spyro Gyra. We spend a good amount of time talking about Joel’s early adoption of the home studio. We also discuss Joel’s grip/technique change and his personal teaching practice including his own set of play along tracks. Finally he falls victim to the DWG personality test…We’d also like to send our condolences to the Allman Brothers family on the sudden loss of founding member, Butch Trucks. In the outro (under a bed of the ABB’s “Hotlanta”) we discuss Butch’s influence and importance. Join us every Monday for a brand new podcast.
