I look forward to working out every day.
I do read music, but I prefer playing from the heart.
The word spiritual, not the word religious, is the key.
I wanted an electric train for Christmas but I got the saxophone instead.
There'll be no oiling up with this band. The oil has been there for years and it only gets better.
Being involved in the well-being and advancement of one's own community is a most natural thing to do.
Now that I am much older, I have had a number of sax players tell me I was responsible for them playing sax. Some of them I have admired over the years.
It's a matter of choosing what is most important to you and putting that first. Once you have recognized your true purpose in life, this becomes much easier.
In the mental calmness of a spiritual life, I have found that the answers to the whys in our lives are able to come to you. In my music I find the same thing.
The calm mind allows one to connect with the inner self, the Soul, the very source of our being. That's where the music lives. That's where my music comes from.
