I've learned that you simply can't control those bad vibes.
I started realizing that music is the one area where I've always let go. When that saxophone goes into my mouth, I get into a space where I never think about the notes I've already played or anticipate the notes ahead.
Unless I've got Katy Perry on the cover of my CD, it's going to be tough to sell a lot of records.
I really create everything I do from the heart.
Any saxophone player will have those influences come through in their music in a very different way. I can listen to the same 10 sax players as someone else for my entire life, and we'll both play completely differently. That's the beauty of being a musician.
Maybe the biggest thing that I've learned musically is that anything is possible. Things can work when maybe they don't seem like they can.
That's my ideal day, time with my boys.
Generally, I like Indian music because the melodies are usually not too complex, which is how I like music, and that's the way I write music.
I don't go to clubs. I don't know what club mixes are supposed to sound like.
With the sax, I learned technique well enough so that it feels like part of my body, and I just express myself. That's where I want to get in golf.
I'm responsive to my public, but I also follow my heart.
If I even lose my glasses or make a mistake. I become really disappointed in myself.
There are a few countries that, for whatever reason, really enjoy listening to my music.
I don't play the traditional Charlie Parker songs. But I do improvise and I do create with my instrument, and that to me is jazz. But there are people who use the word 'jazz' only in a traditional sense, and they would be offended by that, and that's fine.
I approach everything in my life the same way; if it feels right, I know it.
