I’ve been listening to them for so
long and they have influenced the way
that I hear music in such a profound
way, the opportunity to work with
them was a dream come true.
Whether I should have played
some of these solos or not was
not that important. What
was important was to
get the essence of the
played on my tune
“Songo,” and it was just
incredible. Listening to him
work through all those
changes—he doesn’t just do the
old minor pentatonic stuff, man!
He was very complimentary about
the song and the way it flows, and
that really made me feel good.
Mike Stern was such a down
to earth guy. He heard the track,
did the solo in basically one take,
and then did some background
guitar work as well. It was amazing to
watch him. He told me he thought it
was a cool song. To be complimented
on my compositional skills from two of
my favorite guitar players, I thought,
“This is not a bad job.”
The one thing that I could compare
it to was when I went to the All-Star
Game in 1999. That was the year they
brought out the Team of the Century.
So there I am, an All Star, and they bring
out all these Hall of Famers like
Ted Williams and Willie
Mays. All of a sudden,
I’m feeling like a rookie.
It really put some perspective
