Personal Quote:

[on his approach to performance] I start from one point and go as far as possible. But, unfortunately, I never lose my way. I 'localize', which is to say that I think always in a given space.I rarely think of the whole of a solo, and only very briefly. I always return to the small part of the solo that I was in the process of playing. The harmonies have become for me a kind of obsession. See more »
