Thanks for the heads-up on the interview. Looking forward to reading it soonest. I had a chance to talk with Dave for a couple of minutes last Saturday (11/28) after his gig. What a warm, nice person. Had a chance to chat with Kevin, Eric and Craig too. Just great guys and more than happy to talk with you. I agree that Dave's new project is different, and certainly not what I was expecting after I saw him last February. Frankly, their live performance is better than the new CD, but that isn't necessarily surprising. I have to say that beyond their musical excellence, you could sure tell they were having fun. Kevin Eubanks is a hoot, and as incredible as they all are, I was really impressed with Eric Harland. Wow. He's my new favorite drummer.
