I’m starting to believe that you go on stage either to be loved by an audience, or to love the audience. I want to love everybody. These songs are my way of saying, this is who I am and this is how I feel about life, hope it inspires you. They are also a way for me to say – I see you, I understand how you feel and we are in this together. And there’s something special in Jazz music in that we have to come together and do this in real time. It’s really about creating something, with an audience, improvised in the moment. That’s why we recorded the band together in one room with no headphone and no separation and why we kept some of the studio noises. So you really feel how in the moment this all is, how human it is. That realness and vulnerability doesn’t happen as easily in other types of music, and that really turns me on. That really is a big part of the allure of Jazz music for me. Another big thing is the human challenge – the idea that you have to be someone, you have to be on a journey to have character, to be yourself. It’s not about being an anonymous part of a band, and it’s not about repeating other people’s statement. You have to bring something made by you. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel, but you definitely should have your own voice and your own style. And with this band and these stories, It’s the first time I feel like I really do.
