I don’t feel nostalgic when I play with the band because I think about who I am at that moment and what I’m going to do in the next moment.

I play like I talk”.
Paradox, irony or chance, the result was that the classical world lost a cellist but the jazz world gained an extraordinary double bass player. In Detroit he oriented his career to the realm of joyful noise and soon joined a band with which he played his first gig:
