all that jazz
The name of this album is Well, I Should Have...* subtitled Learned How To Play Piano.
Yeah, it's very literal.
Now, you're playing with professional jazz musicians: Scott Kreitzer on sax, David Finck on bass, and Jonathan Peretz is playing drums. Was this an act of friendship, or just a measure of the jazz economy — that you gotta do whatever gig comes along?
They were very nice to do it, and I'm not sure they realized what they were doing until we got there. And then they were mad. But not mad enough to stop altogether. So they went through with it, and they were great.
That is real untapped un-talent.
[About saxophonist Scott Kreitzer] He's good.
Yeah! He knows what he's doing.
He really does. But that's just not as interesting.
Do you think it lacks the complete sense of free-form surprise that you're after?
He's not taking any risks. He just knows how to do it.
