I wanted to break that pattern a bit this time. Joining Pat this year once again will be his long time drummer Antonio Sanchez who has been his most consistent associate in a huge variety of settings since He is one of the greatest drummers of all time and the fact that we have been able to share so much music together over these years is something really special for both of us.
Innaritu film was nominated for a Golden Globe award and Grammy award as well as dozens of other prizes around the world. He has the capacity to listen and be inside the music with an intensity that is unique. That focus, combined with his truly otherworldly skills on the kit puts him his own category. The first time I heard Linda, she immediately went to the top of my list of candidates.
She has everything I always am looking for; great time, great notes and a lot of imagination. When we got together, she was so easy to play with.
She went on to tell me how much she had been affected as a young player by my record Question and Answer and a few others, which is incredibly gratifying for me. I am really excited to get the chance to play with Linda. When I listened to his CD, I became an instant fan; Gwilym is simply one of the best piano players I have heard in a long, long time. After trying to find time to get together over a number of years, in I was finally able to stay over after a gig in London do some playing.
We had planned on getting together for a few hours or so, but wound up playing continuously for an entire afternoon. It was absolutely incredible what we were able to get to so quickly. I have only ever had that kind of communication and ease of playing with another musician a handful of times over the years to that degree.
I am so excited to get the chance to play with Gwilym and there seems to be enormous potential there for us to develop a really unique way of playing together.
I have already written a bunch of new music inspired just by the thought of this presentation, but I could also imagine playing only old music one night, or even playing entire albums. I like the idea of keeping it open and letting it become whatever it winds up being over the course of a tour. At this stage, I have so much music and it all is kind of one big thing for me without borders or distinctions between this period or that period.
