AAJ: What is your favorite place and time to practice and why?

KS: This morning, I woke up after going to sleep at 5am. I was watching a talk on Herbie Hancock by a Harvard professor. I woke up at 10 am and thought, "Man I just have the urge to just play." So as soon as I got out of the bed, I didn't do anything except head straight to the studio and started playing. So after I wake up, around 10 am, is probably my favorite time. Hopefully, around that time my neighbors are out. I just think during this time when the sun is shining so bright, there is so much potential in the day. So I really like practicing at that time, and where I'm at I really can't practice at night too much. Probably 10am-12pm is when I like to start because it's just a beautiful time during the day. In New York, it's just a beautiful thing to be able to wake up and play in your own apartment and I take advantage of that. My neighbors are extra cool.
