Yeah, Pete Cosey is incredible, easily my favorite guitarist. I wish he would put out a solo album.

I MET PETE AT A CLUB CALED JUST JAZZ ON ARCH STREET IN PHILLY IN 1975 MILES WAS BOOKED FOR FIVE OR SIX NIGHTS STRAIGHT; THE UNIT I PLAYED WITH WENT TO CHECK THE MUSIC OUT A COUPLE NIGHTS; GETTING THERE EARLY PETE WAS USUALLY THE FIRST ONE TO SETUP AND LINE HIS EQUIPMENT.

AT THE TIME HE WAS USING MORLEY PETALS A MUTRON 3 AND AN AMAZING EMS SYNTHI HI FLI GUITAR SYNTH
I JUST WANTED TO SAY THANK YOU BROTHER FOR INVITING ME INTO YOUR WORLD OF SONICS, I STILL USE THE EQUIPMENT THE LINING SEQUENCES AND THE INFORMATION YOU TURNED ME TO; PEACE LOVE HEALTH AND PROSPERITY TO YOU ALWAYS. B
