When I think about my new CD, the word 'joy' comes to mind. I sincerely hope that each listener will feel the earth, spirit, and aggressive creativity emanating from this album.
At the same time, I definitely want to expand my fan base but not at the expense of prostituting my music or heart.
I would much prefer that they take me as I am, that way the experience is genuine between the both of us.
I mean this record does not sound like somebody's maiden voyage.
I've developed an audience over the years and I don't want to loose them.
We're performing several shows in the Canary Islands.
I'm planning a different show, though for obvious reasons some of the material will be the same, and of course I will perform material from the new CD.
At the end of '69 I did a gig with Jean Luc Ponty here in L.A. He was an electric violinist.
Frank liked me because I went nuts on the piano using feet, head, whatever I could find to bang on the piano.
I'm also working on a track for Howard Hewett, and a theme for a new NPR show.
Well, since I produce and pay for my own albums, it is the ultimate freedom.
I grew up with Al Jarreau. We had a band together and worked these places for three years when neither one of us knew we could make a living doing music.
I'm really looking forward to playing in Copenhagen again. Last time I stayed as long as I could, took pictures, signed autographs, and hung out until they through me out of the place!
I also hope that with the assistance and expertise of Dome Records, that I will be able to further pierce the UK and European market. I really like playing there and I want to do more! I've found that the audiences get quite involved and really listen to what's happening.
