AAJ: Although your solo discography isn't extensive, you do a lot of projects with other musicians; what's in the pipeline?

JH: Quite a bit [laughs]. I'm actually now producing five recordings. I'm mixing two records, one by a New York band called E.S.P. and another by a vibraphonist in a group called Shapes. This is my third recording g with them. I'm in pre-production with three other records and I'm about to do a series of concerts with Jeff Lorber. I co-produced his last CD, Now's the Time (heads Up, 2011) which was nominated for Grammy. I'll be performing with him this year and we're brainstorming on producing his follow-up record. I also mentioned the rock-blues group, Renegade Creation, with Robben Ford, [guitarist]Michael Landau and [drummer] Gary Novak, and we're trying to schedule a second recording; we have quite a few dates on the books, I'm doing some recording with [guitarist] Allan Holdsworth; I've been in his quartet with [pianist] Allan Pasqua and [drummer] Chad Wackerman for the past three years, and Allan's working on a new solo record so I have to schedule few recording days with him. There's more but I think you get the picture.
