AAJ: The musicians you work with, in either your quartet, quintet or with the band NY Unit, these musicians come from different backgrounds and bring their experience and musical wealth together in what Herb Sierra describes as a very strong spirited musical performance that gets to the listener. There are influences of Latin, funk, jazz, folk, r&b ... You like to call your music "urban folk and jazz" also because you're living and working in New York. Have you ever considered moving to another city, or another country even?

KJ: I've always wanted to move to another country, it just gets hard to do. You get settled and want to be among your friends, I like New York too. Hopefully I will do enough touring to feel like I've lived everywhere a little - oh, that does sound silly doesn't it?
