Music is sharing what and who we are deep down, not showing off our skills, that happens much too often in "bad" jazz. Getting rid of all the unnecessary notes and ornaments, simplifying and let air and silence and space in the music, that's what I head for. I like music to be direct, straight forward and sincere, that applies to people I like to play music with. Music is the art of sharing emotions.
Your dream band: My ideal band would be composed of musicians who are great listeners and serve the music before their ego, I try hard to avoid this booby trap. I would love to play with a great funk/jazz bassist and drummer such as Paco Sery. I would also love to sing in a jazz/funk band with the energy of bands like Tower of Power, the beauty of Bill Evans
