In 1992 Geoff Wilkinson produced the groundbreaking jazz/hip-hop crossover track Cantaloop (Flip Fantasia)," gaining international recognition with his Us3 project. Fourteen years and six albums down the line he's still going strong, but it could all have been very different.
For a man whose achievements are so widely respected, Wilkinson comes across as a genuine, open person--not at all pretentious or arrogant. AAJ contributor Frederick Bernas spoke with Wilkinson at London's Jazz Cafe, where Us3 played two nights, launching a European tour through September and October 2007. In this in-depth interview Wilkinson speaks, at length, about the highs and lows of his long and convoluted musical journey.
