Thoroughly enjoyed Eddie’s interview. Thanks.
I completely relate to the ‘less is more’ thinking. It’s just a shame that it only really hits home after years of experience; if only I could have realized that leaving space and playing more sparingly thirty years ago I’d be a far better player!

    Glad you enjoyed the conversation. It was a blast chatting with Eddie. I can’t believe he’s near 80 he has the vibrancy of someone in their 20s!

    Stanley Drucker said a similar thing on the podcast, and I’ve heard similar from Glenn Gould in interviews as well. Seems Eddies words about knowing you can play fast, so you don’t need to, really ring true.
