    „We all grew up in the ’60s and the ’70s, listening to pop radio with tons of Motown, James Brown, funk. We grew up with „My Girl.“ People all over the world think of that song as the music of their youth. I love to play R & B and swing it, with a back beat like rock n‘ roll, but with a hard swing beat—a fun beat to play. Jazz that does not take itself too seriously.“

    „I’m not trying to be nostalgic. I heard other kinds of music all around me since I was born and from then on. I grew up in the sixties and seventies and I heard a lot of funk, R & B that I loved, King Curtis, Sam „The Man“ Taylor, Junior Walker, the honky-tonk saxophonists and, of course, jazz players such Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Yusef Lateef, David „Fathead“ Newman. I studied jazz. It’s always been, for me, part jazz and part R & B because, being someone who grew up in these times, I was always aware of the pop music around me and always interested in combining what I love in jazz with contemporary rhythms of today. I love all the traditions of the saxophone. All of it is a reflection in my own musical world.“

    „I think that we all made some very interesting music because it came from something deep in our psyches—melodies that we heard all our lives, melodies that were not heard on the radio, in the tradition that’s around for thousands of years. We came with our own authenticity.“
