GC: If you had unlimited budget, what would be a dream project?
DB: I'd probably do some stuff with some famous singers. Have different groups behind different singers. I made a record years ago called "Fine Line" and the way that it started was that I was trying to get some famous voices to be on that record. Not because they were famous but because I wanted to work with familiar voices and also singers that meant something to me. At that time we asked Phoebe Snow to be on that record. I really wanted that. I was really happy that I got Cassandra Wilson to sing Stephen Sondheim. But I really want to experiment with different singers because some of the stuff that I've been talking about about studying ornamentation and phrasing and things like that...as an instrumentalist, I always feel like we need to get closer to what the singers are doing, and vice versa. And there's probably some singers that I would like to work with just for a tune or maybe for a whole record, I don't know.
