Personal Quote:

I've been practising Buddhism for forty years and that's what has led me to this path of discovering my own humanity and recognizing the humanity in others. The wonderful thing is that jazz itself is a wonderful model of that kind of thinking, because it's a music that's in the moment. It's also collaborative, so it's unselfish in that way. And it certainly is creative. See more »

Made his stage debut with the Chicago Symphany Orchestra at the age of 11. See more »
