What Lies Ahead

“Sometimes on tour I have been playing new songs before they are finished. I think the process can be as interesting as the final product. ‘What Lies Ahead‘ is a song I developed from a melody my son Isaac was playing and I still hadn’t finished the words when I performed it at some of the Back to Front shows.

I was very surprised when Paolo Fresu sent me a version he had done with some wonderful players he was working with. They had taken it into a different jazzier territory but it was played with such feeling that I gave Paolo the permission to release it. It has real heart.”
