What are some of the essential requirements to keep jazz alive and growing? Swing is like the sun, it's not going away anytime soon. There should be no fear of losing Jazz or what makes Jazz special.

I have a bunch of new things coming down the pike this year: the new single which is out now, Aching Sarah; a digital release of a vinyl LP that came out earlier this year (digital CD has bonus tracks); and Fifty: 50 Miniatures for Improvising Quintet which will be released in September.

I just finished recording a new project called Bone Bridge with slide-guitarist Doug Wamble
