Interview mit Joe Locke, Musiker der Woche

What does Jazz means to you?

That's a big question. Jazz is my means of expression. A way to heal myself when I feel broken. A way for me to express joy when I feel happy. Being a Jazz musician - my feet are in a river of history that comes from a deep and meaningful past and will flow past me into the future, and I have the privilege to be part of it for some time.

You're in the music business for quite a while. During this time - what has changed for you personally?

I've been in the music business for quite a while and I've seen a lot of changes. For me personally, some of the bigger changes have been that I've taken ownership of my career much more in the last 15 years or so, where I play more what I want to and feel the need to do artistically, not just whatever comes along. That's been important to me.

How many weeks a year are you on tour - and away from home?

I'm on the road I'd say from a third to a half of my time in the year. I feel really happy to have a schedule that's comfortable for me.

What is your relationship to Berne in particular?

I've been to Switzerland several times, though not as much as I would like. I have friends who are not musicians who live in Switzerland, and I feel that Americans have a great deal to learn from the Swiss. Americans are very one-sided as to how we look at the world, even to the point of speaking only one language.
