My music — actually, all great music — should be totally conversational, so we have a great back-and-forth as we share this knowledge, and there are no constraints due to a lack of vocabulary. The same goes for Jeff Pittson, who is a great jazz pianist and organist. He played on my CD with Paul Jackson, The Funk Stops Here, featuring Kenny Garrett. His knowledge of harmony and history allows him to write interesting and challenging music. As far as playing, he is one of the best there is. And he has great chops!
