AAJ: But do you have any specific plans for your next recording?
RB: Well, I'd like to do an album of my arrangements of standards. You know, the majority of the music I have recorded was original compositions, and I want to try some interpretations of standards this time.
AAJ: Just in a classic jazz band? No guitars this time?
RB: Yeah, but who knows. Perhaps different instrumentation would help to make a new presentation of familiar tunes.
