BATA is the capitol of Equatorial Guinée, where I celebrated my 40th birthday, while touring Central Africa in duo with French pianist/composer Denis Badault. The theme occurred while I was warming up for a concert in Yaoundé a few days before. NOCTIFLORE means flowering at night, musicians often do. The present world is in need of an ANTIDOTE, and it is certainly TIME TO CHANGE. Meanwhile I enjoy immensely the music of Mali which inspired RAINBOW REED, as well that of Brasil; PORTO ALLEGRE is not only the city of important international conventions and social experiment, but also the birthplace of my friend Nené Baterista. French singer/songwriter Georges Brassens was very eloquent about LA MAUVAISE REPUTATION (The Bad Reputation), of which many have unjustly suffered. To one of my many favourite composers I wrote SONG FOR SILVER. While MINOR INCIDENT's occur frequently, SMOKE SIGNALS are becoming more rare.
