Starting during the holiday season of 1981 at the age of 19, until the spring of 1986. I worked part-time as a floor manager for A&S department store, Abraham and Strauss. God, such a unique time in life and for my life! During that period. I met so many great people who go on to become life-long friends. Walter Allison, my long-time friend, joins me as we talk about the "fast times at A&S department store!" The stories are endless and funny! Including why I was called down and questioned by security, scandalous!

Thanksgiving is down the block! It's the kickoff to the Christmas and holiday season. Like many, I use this time to express thanks. As usual, I take things too far, and since 2007-2008, the holiday has become my time to dig deeper into my spirt. The reason being is, after experiencing so many losses, I wanted to learn all that I could about how we transition from our physical selves, I wanted answers to my question "what happens when we die?" Ultimately, I was taken on a life-changing spiritual adventure. I got more than the answers I was looking for and I'm so "thankful."

My dad the Salsa and Jazz freak that he was would throw his girlfriend, my sister and I in the car and head down to the village in Manhattan. I did not like Salsa or Jazz at the time. But hey, it was a night out and as a young musician. I heard outstanding music and I got to see the masters perform.

For years I held close to "little David." That childhood part of me. Well into my twenties and thirties I could still hear his younger voice talking to me, guiding me and advising me. Then one day he was gone.
High school, 1977 I was introduced to two brothers. Johnny and Vincent Byfield. John told me he was starting a band and needed a bass player. He asked me to come down and play. Excited out of my mind. This was to be my first band ever. More importantly, the keyboard player in the band would become a life long friend and a strong source of inspiration and influence during the early stages of my music. Meet Clayton Gittens!
