Your own album, Connecting the Dots, was phenomenal. In hindsight, how do you feel about it? Anything you would change? I think in one sense I wouldn’t change a thing. So with Connecting the Dots, the album title was what I was trying to do by bringing all those worlds together. But the album allowed me to show my face as a writer, composer and producer. At the time I was listening to Quincy Jones’ album, The Dude quite a bit.
