AAJ: What special projects do you now have in the works and when will we see the next batch of releases?

ME: The past five months have been a very busy period for Sharp Nine. I've released 5 CD's, which is generally more than a year's production. So right now, I'm working hard to sell these new releases, working to improve foreign distribution and planning releases for after the first of the year. I'm so pleased with the new ones we've recently released that I want to come back to these same artists again: Tardo Hammer (maybe a Tardo Plays Tadd date), the great Joe Locke/Hazeltine quartet (Mutual Admiration Society) that I should have mentioned above, and Dena DeRose. Plus, I want to make another one with Brian Lynch, but we're still kind of agonizing over concept and personnel.

AAJ: Is there anything else you'd like to share with our readers that hasn't been asked about?

ME: I think I've said enough. Probably more than enough. I'd be happy to hear any thoughts that the readers might have, though, so please feel free to visit the Sharp Nine website.
