PLACES AND SPACES
'You don't know this? Fuck, man! (paces around and mimes punching the interviewer).
Donald Byrd is another one of these people, like Johnny Hammond, Roy Ayers... it's jazz in an understandable form. It has such freedom, unusual arrangements, Really funky changes, and it moves along. That's what I like, music that rolls along. To do music with that tempo and make it boogieable, it's about where they haven't played notes - the spaces. That's what they're masters of. They're masters of the groove.'
(Jay Kay for the magazine Q in '99)
