A lot of it had to do with a willingness to play with different types of musicians. For instance, on my second album Journey to Love, I had Jeff Beck playing on there. He came to my house one day in Long Island, and this long limousine pulled up and Jeff jumped out and introduced himself. He was actually playing a song of mine called "Power" in his set, and in turn we became friends. He brings his language and I have mine, and we came together and we created what we did. You don't see a lot of that now, too much crossover stuff happening. That's why it's so interesting when you do see somebody, say, in hip-hop, play with one of the rock bands. But back in the late '60s, early '70s, that was commonplace.

What can people expect at your Carver show on June 2?

We're going to be doing some new stuff and some old music. The band is really exciting. We've been together for quite a while now, it's really refined and very powerful. And it's going to be a fun show. That's the main thing now. These guys that I play with are such virtuosos, but they're not a bunch of serious guys staring at music stands. They really have fun, but it's still real high-level stuff. •
