“I always thought that music had no boundaries, no limits to where it could grow and go, no restrictions on its creativity. Good music is good music no matter what kind of music it is. And I always hated categories. Always. Never thought it had any place in music.” Miles Davis (1926-1991)

"This quote by the legendary trumpeter, composer and band leader, Miles Davis sums up nicely what it is that I am striving for in my music. Jazz is what you make of it...being as open as possible to any music of the past, present or future. While at the same time, attempting to remain true and honest to yourself, and always staying in the moment."
