I have recorded over 25 CDs in my strange career; I've been reviewed, and have had the privilege of working with some of the greatest musicians ever (Ros Rudd, Julius Hemphill, Nels Cline, Doc Cheatham, David Murray, Marc Ribot, Ken Peplowski, Don Byron, Lewis Porter, Jimmy Knepper, Randy Sandke, Frank Lacey) - and we played for people, actual people. So at age 67, half dead, I get a little impatient with these questions. I have a small but steady audience which buys my releases (and my books) and allows me to keep doing my life's work. The way to do it is to do it. Straight and simple. I love the music and the musicians who play it.
