AAJ: What's on your plate now?



JDR: I'd like to do some live recording with my band and I'm working with Tom Zink and his wife, Anne Walsh, on her new CD. She sings on "Lenore, the Chick Corea tune, on Dante's View .We utilized her operatic voice with a nod to the Mahavishnu Orchestra's and Return to Forever's Gayle Moran. It came together beautifully. I'm looking forward to her making a big mark on the jazz scene.



As for me, I have come full circle. I now realize I was destined to be a musician. These other jobs were not detours at all. I now love playing the music, doing the artwork, taking the pictures, designing my web-page and creating the album covers that contain my music. They are now all a part of the same thing. They are part of me. This is what I am now. I think that is what core beliefs is all about.
