PS I am part of another quartet called the Samuel Blais Quartet. We play around in Montreal and New York occasionally. I also co-write and arrange music with my girlfriend who is a singer named Sharada Banman. We are going to be recording her CD (in duo format) later this month. I also freelance, and do session work whenever I can. I enjoy scoring for TV and film as well.
DS Do you have a favourite jazz city from all your touring? Or a favourite local venue?
PS My favourite venue has got to be the Tokyo Blue Note. We've had such an incredible reception there. The whole experience of playing in Japan has made my all time favourite list.
DS What do you want people to know about OneUpOneDown in general, Straight to Plan B in particular?
PS I would first of all like to thank all the people that come out to support us in a live setting. It is very much a blessing, and very gratifying to an artist when people show their appreciation for the music. It's not just about selling records. It's about the 'reason' people decide to get one. Hopefully we've touched them on some level. That's really why we do this.
