"...my two cents about the whole jazz standards issue is that I kind of feel as though musicians in the 1960's were doing treatments of music they grew up with or that was their parents' popular music. And I feel that if I were to carry on in that tradition, I would play something like "Woodstock" rather than "My Ship" because that's my parents' music or music I might have been exposed to at an impressionable age.

So in terms of covering Pink Floyd, I think it makes sense because this is something I would've been listening to in high school; I wasn't listening to George Gershwin tunes back then, although obviously that music is so rich and textured, it forms a significant aspect of everyone's musical vocabulary - mine included. Nor are my experiences especially unique; still, I believe that people should do music that's moving for them and their generation and not feel constrained to do something out of a misplaced sense of tradition.
