I'm so far removed from live playing any more.
The passion and spontaneity in music is all gone.
Growing up, I was very much interested in jazz music.
You never know what you find once you really get going.
My mother is a singer, still performs today; she's a jazz singer.
I spent well over a year on the road with Sarah Vaughn. That was amazing.
Still for fun, I play the drums, but I don't do much recording with them.
I've been doing a lot of music for films and television for quite a few years.
The band couldn't have happened anywhere else in the world but New York. That was the catalyst.
Emotions are the fuel to really move you along - that's the only way you can create music. If you don't feel any emotions, it's not going to happen.
