"I have an iPod filled with ambient music. When you’re travelling with a big band, whether through airports or riding in buses or vans, ambient music is the most soothing way to stand all the personalities that are involved. I used to have a room up front in the Eurobuses, up top. Everyone would come in, and they’d know I’d be in there staring out the window, blaring the ambient jams. It’s also a meditation. Life is a state of mind, so you have to direct it and control it the way you want to. Sometimes you can’t drink a bottle of wine to forget your problems, so you have to put on some ambient music."
