"While I love playing with other musicians,there is something wonderfully limitless and challenging about being onstage or in the studio by myself. In many ways, this is my most intensely personal musical statement, and goes back to my earliest musical roots. I hope to be open and fully present, drawing on the worlds of jazz, classical, funk, and avant-garde, and allowing the music to go where it wants.When the audience shares this openness,we enter a merger state where magic can really happen, and I believe the concert on this CD provides a special example. The confluence of this intimate hall’s acoustics, a superb instrument, and a rapt audience willing to actively meet the performance, created a “vibe” that helped me reach my deepest music.
I hope this concert will take you on a journey to new places."
