How did this new album and overall concept for it come about, and what are your ultimate goals with it?

“Twenty” is my career retrospective to this point, compiling my best works from the last 20 years. Even better, it has also been the basis for me re-forming Project Grand Slam.

What artists do you feel akin to or in the same tribe with?

I grew up musically during the jazz fusion era. I adored artists like Weather Report and Return To Forever. I still do.

Who would you say has been the single biggest influence in your life in getting you to where you are now in your career?

My parents. My father played the trumpet and insisted that I play an instrument. My mother made me practice, even when I hated doing it. They put the musical bug in me.

If you were to choose to learn a new instrument that you’ve never played before, what instrument might that be?

Piano. It’s the most important instrument in music in my opinion. I wish I had learned to play it when I was young.

What are some of the most important goals you have for yourself in the next five to ten years?

I took a break from my jazz career over the last several years to recharge my batteries. Now, I’m jazzed (pun intended) to get back to playing with Project Grand Slam, writing and recording.

What aspect of the creative process, from concept to market, do you personally find to be the most rewarding?

The initial creation of a composition is my favorite part of the process. I write mainly while playing my bass and singing a melody along to a riff or a chord structure. Seeing it “come alive” is an incredible feeling, kind of like giving birth to a child.
