"Songs are precious in that I still like the songs, but this isn't classical music. It's largely based on an improvised form and I like improvising. I actually like adding songs together and adding songs to other songs, bits that remind you of other bits. I'm always wandering off into something else, I suppose that's a thing from jazz, you quote stuff all the time."
