More About

Gosey's voice commands with the rhythmic cadences and the well-chosen words of the preacher's son that he is. There is more than mere style to his speech; there is also substance, a deep, resonant wisdom about music and life and where they meet. "In 1985 I got real, real sick. I got to where I couldn't play at all. And then I realized how precious it was to be able to do something, to be able to communicate, to be able to help someone. I was able to help somebody forget about his problems -- maybe it's not for but a second or two, but that's a second or two that he really enjoys. And that's what life is all about, enjoying it. I enjoy it, because I know that tomorrow's not promised to you. So I play for today, I live for today, and I treat people the way that I want to be treated. That's the key."
