He pauses and sighs a bit. "There's a lot to do. I've got three or four records in my mind that I need to do now. I wanted to do this trio project, but now I'm already off of that. Of course, we're going to do some touring after the release of the record, but in my mind I'm already onto this music that I'm making with this rock producer in London. And I'm also working on a Heartcore 2 kind of record, which is more influenced by Brazilian music with horn arrangements and all real instruments as opposed to the synthetic palette I was using on Heartcore (his provocative Verve recording released in 2003 and produced by rapper Q-Tip from the alternative hiphop trio A Tribe Called Quest). And I'm working on a solo guitar record that is just voice and guitar using a lot of effects. I'm really thrilled about that one. Then there has to be another quartet or quintet record after that because I've got a lot of songs that need that context. Yeah, so much to do, but I don't have enough time."

Clearly, there's much to come from this restlessly creative spirit.
