"Lots of good things going on musically and my creative path is now a reflection of many new developments in my life. I am playing clubs and concerts to an audience which hungers for an immediate connection to the moment and a musical conversation between great musicians with a massive vocabulary. I am offering a musical story that will take them through all the levels of the human experience not just the earthbound hues of blues and funk which I love so dearly. As well as all my American influences I am also freely drawing upon my love of Bartok, Gipsy music, Sufi music, Beethoven, Flamenco, and the great improvisational traditions. My life has been dedicated to mastering my instrument like never before and I’m set on keeping my musical voice in the foreground."
