ARTURO MORA: There’s an almost ethnic motive in some parts of Tempest, strengthened by Dave Liebman’s Indian flute sound. In other parts your guitar strumming reminds of a folk environment, and elements of rock and drum’n’bass can also be found throughout the recording. Do you think crossover is, today, a central element of jazz?
SCOTT DUBOIS: Absolutely. The music people are writing today in the modern jazz/improvised music scene has influences from every type of music you can imagine. This has been in jazz since the beginning when it began as a blend of European harmony and African rhythm coming together in America. I listen to almost every type of music that is out there and it just naturally flows through my pencil when I’m composing.
