"So what's to learn at fifty? My credo for NPR's "This I Believe" will be Sweat the Small Stuff, inverting the usual axiom of Don't Sweat the Small Stuff. For me, in both music and life, the devil is in the details. If you can get the little things right, then, hopefully, the big, good work follows. And in music, as in life, by polishing the small stuff, eventually the whole will glisten. What more can we ask for?"
