AAJ: I know you have a lot on your plate. What are the highlights coming up in 2019 and beyond? A little birdie maned Leni told me that, Mike, Jimmy, and Lorber were in the studio with you and her, and that you are working on a new project. Is that something you can talk about or are we keeping that under wraps for the time being?

DW: 2019 is pretty filled up. I'm busy with co-leading bands with Mike Stern though the summer. We're currently on an EU tour now (April), then we go to China for a week in May, then back to EU for some summer festivals in July.

September will have me playing a couple shows only, with Chick in Japan, with both the E and A bands. I am working towards being in China mid to late September doing clinics, camps, classes and performances there. Early November I'll be back with Oz and Jimmy, and yes, early December will be the Stern/Lorber project tour in the USA.

I plan to start up my own projects and bands again in 2020. Stay tuned!
