The more we do this thing, the more clearly the words come to me to describe it. We are not “trying” to do anything, per se, but we do write songs and improvise over the chord changes we come up with, so I call it Jazz. We are definitely inspired by the legends of the classic Jazz / Rock / Funk Fusion era. What they did, and what I believe we are still doing is define the boundaries of genre. We have resisted categorization. We resist conceptualizing what our next step will be before it happens. We trust each other musically. It is a leap of faith each and every time.

Instrumental music has the power to expose our common language and help people come together in times that divide us. We create spontaneously through sharing ideas, often without talking, and without editing (at least not much). As Wayne Shorter said, “Jazz is a challenge to improvize and be in the moment, because one moment equals eternity.”
