Take Five With Zack Cross
What are some of the essential requirements to keep jazz alive and growing? We need to play music that people want to hear. It is really that simple. Original music is great, but seriously if every song on every new album is a new tune, then the average listener is going to be really turned off. It's a fact.
What is in the near future? I'm planning a tour for the Zack Cross Trio, hopefully a mid-level east coaster for the summer. We already have a couple of summer camps that we are going to stop at, which I love doing.
I just got fired. I took too much time off (that's when we recorded Up/Under). Also, don't eat at the Southfield Store in Southfield, MA.
If I weren't a jazz musician, I would be a: Yoga teacher. I love Yoga.
