AAJ: It sounds like you're going to need a full-time handler.

TF: (laughs) I would love that. I'm always happier when I'm crazy busy. I never complain—you'll never hear me say, "Oh, it's just so busy right now." And it's because I really love what I do and I love the people I do it with. So the more the better. And there are always little breaks in there, so I make sure when those happen that I take advantage of whatever I feel I need at that time, whether it's taking a full-on break or vacation, or whether it's spending some time studying something else or practicing...but I feel very fortunate. Even the Triple Double band: everyone in the band is such an amazing artist and person, and so I want to do as much as possible to work on that too. The album came out yesterday, so I'll be trying to get opportunities for that group. I'm doing a week at the Stone in the spring, so we'll be playing as part of that, and we're playing in Austria next month, so I'll be looking forward to that as well.
