I&#8217;m celebrating with an archival episode from back in my jazz radio days. I interviewed Les McCann in 2004 about his classic album <em>Swiss Movement</em>. Les passed away on December 29, 2023. I thought I&#8217;d commemorate his passing and celebrate his life and the birthday of this show by sharing that interview with you.

They’ve been described as “the gold standard for jazz vocals”, “timeless”, and “masters of their art.” They recently celebrated their 34th birthday and seem to go from strength to strength. Collaborations with Bob Mintzer, and the WDR Big Band are peppered throughout a touring career that has seen them perform on stages all over Europe, the USA, the UK, Israel and Asia. How do they do it? Why do they still do it? And what do they love about being part of a working band that continues to create at the highest standard? Well, listen to our conversation to discover the answers to those burning questions and so much more.</p> <p class="p1"> <span class="s1"><b>Show Notes:<br /> </b></span><i>Tracklisting:<br /> </i>&#8211; It’s Alright With Me (Reminiscing In Tempo, 2019)<br /> &#8211; In A Mellow Tone (Sing!

He is a performer, a recording artist whose release record is prolific, an educator (including a ten-year stint as artistic director of the Workshop in Jazz and Creative Music at The Banff Centre in Canada), and a pioneer of artist-run labels with Greenleaf Music which is nearly 20 years old. His musical collaborations are many and varied, including revered artists like Joe Lovano, Linda May Han Oh, Bill Frisell, and vocalist Aoife O’Donovan. We talk about his 2022 albums &#8220;Secular Psalms&#8221; and &#8220;Overcome&#8221;, his outlook on recording and juggling several projects simultaneously, and his advice for musicians pitching record labels.</p> <p><span class="s1"><b>Show Notes:<br /> </b></span><i>Tracklisting:<br /> </i>&#8211; Arrival<br /> &#8211; We Shall Overcome (feat.

Featuring some of the finest UK-based jazz musicians, like vocalist Lauren Kinsella and drummer Dave Hamblett, the group just released their second album, aptly titled “II”. Recorded at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios, it builds on the groups first album that combined contemporary folk and chamber pop with an emphasis on the song at hand. The second album also sees Matthew move more firmly into the role of songwriter, barely bringing his horn to the party, but no less present in Seafarers’ sound and mission.</p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1"><b>Show Notes:<br /> </b></span><i>Tracklisting:<br /> </i>&#8211; Hamelin<br /> &#8211; The Lighthouse<br /> &#8211; All That Matters<br /> &#8211; A Disappearing Act<br /> &#8211; Newlyweds</p> <p><a href="https://seafarersmusic.bandcamp.com/album/ii-2">Buy “II” from Bandcamp here </a></p> <p>Theme music by <a href="http://respectsextet.com/"><span class="s3">The Respect Sextet</span></a><br /> Follow The Jazz Session on <a href="http://twitter.com/jazzsesh"><span class="s3">Twitter</span></a>, <a href="http://instagram.com/thejazzsession"><span class="s3">Instagram</span></a> and <a href="http://facebook.com/thejazzsession"><span class="s3">Facebook</span></a><br /> Subscribe to The Jazz Session’s<a href="https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoCdrWUSAn-GBXogLJfbsxw"><span class="s3"> YouTube Channel</span></a><span class="s1"><br /> </span></p> <p class="p1">Support The Jazz Session by becoming a member at <a href="https://www.patreon.com/thejazzsession"><span class="s3">Patreon.</span></a><br /> For $5 a month you’ll get a weekly bonus episode called Track of the Week, plus early access to every show.

In some ways, I think of her as a British jazz gem, but that would do a disservice to the fact that she’s very much loved in other jazz communities around the globe. Her musical work in the UK has seen her become a leading figure in the British jazz tradition. She is known for her collaborations with vocalists Norma Winstone and Tina May, and has expanded her reputation as leader of the Nikki Iles Jazz Orchestra since the ensemble debuted at the 2018 EFG London Jazz Festival. She’s worked with the Frankfurt Radio Big Band, the WDR Big Band, and led several groups, including The Printmakers comprising a who’s-who of British jazz. Most recently, she was awarded a British Empire Medal (BEM) for ‘Services to Music’ and an Ivor Novello J<span style="font-weight: 400;">azz Ensemble Composition Prize</span>. We chat about her foray into large ensemble writing, her take on British jazz identity, motherhood, and so much more.</p> <p><span class="s1"><b>Show Notes:<br /> </b></span><i>Tracklisting:<br /> </i>&#8211; High Lands (feat.

He was virtuosic, superbly musical, and, most importantly, gave me a newfound appreciation for the soprano saxophone. He has been recording as sideman and leader for the Munich-based ACT label for ten years and his latest album “Louise” is his 7th offering as bandleader. For the first time, he teams up with a core band comprising both European AND American jazz musicians, and the results are richly nuanced and exciting.</p> <p><span class="s1"><b>Show Notes:<br /> </b></span><i>Tracklisting:<br /> </i>&#8211; Louise<br /> &#8211; Jojo<br /> &#8211; Prayer 4 Peace<br /> &#8211; The Crave (Emile Parisien &amp; Vincent Peirani)<br /> &#8211; Jungle Jig</p> <p class="p1"><a href="https://www.actmusic.com/en/Artists/Emile-Parisien">Visit ACT Music here to buy </a><i>Louise</i></p> <p>Theme music by <a href="http://respectsextet.com/"><span class="s2">The Respect Sextet</span></a><br /> Follow The Jazz Session on <a href="http://twitter.com/jazzsesh"><span class="s2">Twitter</span></a>, <a href="http://instagram.com/thejazzsession"><span class="s2">Instagram</span></a> and <a href="http://facebook.com/thejazzsession"><span class="s2">Facebook</span></a><br /> Subscribe to The Jazz Session’s<a href="https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoCdrWUSAn-GBXogLJfbsxw"><span class="s2"> YouTube Channel</span></a><span class="s1"><br /> </span></p> <p class="p1">Support The Jazz Session by becoming a member at <a href="https://www.patreon.com/thejazzsession"><span class="s2">Patreon.</span></a><br /> For $5 a month you’ll get a weekly bonus episode called Track of the Week, plus early access to every show.

She has released fourteen albums, nine of which have been nominated for Grammy Awards for Best Jazz Vocal Album. Her fifteenth album comes out on 6 May 2022 and is called “Paris Sessions II”. Like the first volume, it features guitarist Serge Merlaud and bassist Kevin Axt, but this time flautist Hubert Laws joins the fray and the results are both intimate and musically rewarding. Tierney and I talk about her work on Clint Eastwood’s film”Sully,” her reverence for great songwriters, including her friends Alan and Marilyn Bergman, her newfound love for producing other vocalist’s albums, and how being a jazz musician is all about being happy to &#8220;do the thing.&#8221;</p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1"><b>Show Notes:<br /> </b></span><i>Tracklisting:<br /> </i>&#8211; I Knew I Loved You (Paris Sessions II)<br /> &#8211; Sully Running (From the score for “Sully”)<br /> &#8211; All I Want (After Blue)<br /> &#8211; August Winds (Paris Sessions II)<br /> &#8211; Flying Home (Sully’s Theme)<br /> &#8211; Fields of Gold (Sting Variations)<br /> &#8211; April In Paris / Free Man In Paris (Paris Sessions II)</p> <p><b><i>Paris Sessions II </i></b>is out May 6, 2022<br /> <a href="http://tierneysutton.com/">http://tierneysutton.com/</a></p> <p>Theme music by <a href="http://respectsextet.com/"><span class="s2">The Respect Sextet</span></a><br /> Follow The Jazz Session on <a href="http://twitter.com/jazzsesh"><span class="s2">Twitter</span></a>, <a href="http://instagram.com/thejazzsession"><span class="s2">Instagram</span></a> and <a href="http://facebook.com/thejazzsession"><span class="s2">Facebook</span></a><br /> Subscribe to The Jazz Session’s<a href="https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoCdrWUSAn-GBXogLJfbsxw"><span class="s2"> YouTube Channel</span></a><span class="s1"><br /> </span></p> <p class="p1">Support The Jazz Session by becoming a member at <a href="https://www.patreon.com/thejazzsession"><span class="s2">Patreon.</span></a><br /> For $5 a month you’ll get a weekly bonus episode called Track of the Week, plus early access to every show.

Such was the case when a publicist contacted me about one of their artists-a capable musician with a pretty banal musical approach. I explained to the publicist the kind of music I enjoyed and she cleverly pitched me another of her artists, the Durham-raised, London-based pianist <a href="https://www.pauledis.co.uk">Paul Edis</a>. I hit ‘play’ and was captivated for the duration of Paul’s new album “The Still Point of the Turning World.” The solo piano record is all at once reflective, with a lilting charm, and an ability to encourage the listener to pause and slow down. Suffice to say, I wanted to talk to Paul about his beautiful compositions, his trajectory, and his creative approach.

As a vocalist she has worked in new opera, dance, contemporary jazz, new music and multi-media performance. In fact, I first met Areni a decade ago during a course at the School of Improvised Music in Brooklyn, New York. We remained in touch and met up again in Paris in 2014 when she was there studying sacred Armenian music (and I was just eating croissants and ogling Parisian architecture). Her sublime work with the Tigran Hamasyan quintet saw her touring internationally and lending her voice to several of his early recordings that put him on the map. In 2019 Areni made her leader debut on the storied ECM Records with her album “Bloom”.</span></div> </div> <div class="_2TO-components-SimpleRichTextEditor--paragraphElement" data-block="true" data-editor="1b3bk" data-offset-key="fneas-0-0"> <div class="public-DraftStyleDefault-block public-DraftStyleDefault-ltr" data-offset-key="fneas-0-0"><span data-offset-key="fneas-0-0"><br /> S</span><span data-offset-key="fneas-0-1">h</span><span data-offset-key="fneas-0-2">o</span><span data-offset-key="fneas-0-3">w</span> <span data-offset-key="fneas-0-5">N</span><span data-offset-key="fneas-0-6">o</span><span data-offset-key="fneas-0-7">t</span><span data-offset-key="fneas-0-8">e</span><span data-offset-key="fneas-0-9">s</span><span data-offset-key="fneas-0-10">:</span><br /> <em>Tracklisting</em><span data-offset-key="fneas-0-25">:</span><br /> <span data-offset-key="fneas-0-28"><span data-offset-key="fneas-0-28">&#8211; Road Song (with Tigran Hamasyan)<br /> &#8211; Love Song (with Tigran Hamasyan)<br /> &#8211; The Poet (with Tigran Hamasyan)<br /> &#8211; Patience<br /> &#8211; Petal Two<br /> &#8211; Holy (with Tigran Hamasyan)</span></span>Buy your copy of<a class="_4X_-components-SimpleRichTextEditor-components-LinkSpan--linkSpan" href="https://www.ecmrecords.com/shop/1534926181/bloom-areni-agbabian-areni-agbabian"><span data-offset-key="fneas-1-0">Bloom </span><span data-offset-key="fneas-1-1">(ECM RECORDS) here</span></a></p> </div> </div> <div class="_2TO-components-SimpleRichTextEditor--paragraphElement" data-block="true" data-editor="1b3bk" data-offset-key="2ovq3-0-0"> <div class="public-DraftStyleDefault-block public-DraftStyleDefault-ltr" data-offset-key="2ovq3-0-0"><span data-offset-key="2ovq3-0-0">Theme music by </span><a class="_4X_-components-SimpleRichTextEditor-components-LinkSpan--linkSpan" href="http://respectsextet.com/"><span data-offset-key="2ovq3-1-0">The Respect Sextet</span></a><span data-offset-key="2ovq3-2-0"><br /> Follow The Jazz Session on </span><a class="_4X_-components-SimpleRichTextEditor-components-LinkSpan--linkSpan" href="http://twitter.com/jazzsesh"><span data-offset-key="2ovq3-3-0">Twitter</span></a><span data-offset-key="2ovq3-4-0">, </span><a class="_4X_-components-SimpleRichTextEditor-components-LinkSpan--linkSpan" href="http://instagram.com/thejazzsession"><span data-offset-key="2ovq3-5-0">Instagram</span></a><span data-offset-key="2ovq3-6-0"> and </span><a class="_4X_-components-SimpleRichTextEditor-components-LinkSpan--linkSpan" href="http://facebook.com/thejazzsession"><span data-offset-key="2ovq3-7-0">Facebook</span></a><span data-offset-key="2ovq3-8-0"><br /> Subscribe to The Jazz Session’s</span><a class="_4X_-components-SimpleRichTextEditor-components-LinkSpan--linkSpan" href="https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoCdrWUSAn-GBXogLJfbsxw"><span data-offset-key="2ovq3-9-0"> YouTube Channel</span></a><span style="font-family: -apple-system, BlinkMacSystemFont, 'Segoe UI', Roboto, Oxygen-Sans, Ubuntu, Cantarell, 'Helvetica Neue', sans-serif;">Support The Jazz Session by becoming a member at </span><a style="font-family: -apple-system, BlinkMacSystemFont, 'Segoe UI', Roboto, Oxygen-Sans, Ubuntu, Cantarell, 'Helvetica Neue', sans-serif;" href="https://www.patreon.com/thejazzsession"><span class="s1">Patreon.<br /> </span></a><span class="s1"><span style="color: #333333; font-family: -apple-system, BlinkMacSystemFont, 'Segoe UI', Roboto, Oxygen-Sans, Ubuntu, Cantarell, 'Helvetica Neue', sans-serif;">For $5 a month you’ll get a weekly bonus episode called Track of the Week, plus early access to every show.

Both released in 2020, there was “Four Forty One”, which features Will with five incredible pianists (Sullivan Fortner, Fred Hersch, Tigran Hamasyan, Gerald Clayton and Gonzalo Rubalcaba, and “Trio Grande”, which features his trio with guitarist Gilad Hekselman and drummer Antonio Sanchez.

No longer a teen, his debut album “Where Will The River Flow” was released in March 2021 and caught the attention of the WDR Big Band and Bob Mintzer, who has arranged the entire album for the band with Matt as a featured soloist. This concert will take place in March 2022 if you’re lucky enough to be in Germany then. I love Matt’s music for its emphasis on melody, the brilliant way it marries virtuosic Scottish traditional music with improvisation, and its ability to transport the listener to the greenest hills of Scotland.</p> <p><span class="s1"><b>Show Notes:<br /> </b></span><i>Tracklisting:<br /> </i>&#8211; Cononbridge<br /> &#8211; The Spey<br /> &#8211; Firth<br /> &#8211; Sognsvann<br /> &#8211;

Fresh out of high school, he received a call from the bassist Avishai Cohen, inviting him to join his trio with drummer Mark Guiliana. Four trio albums later, Shai went on to form his own groups, recording his compositions that superbly fuse virtuosity with melodic sophistication and rhythmic variety. In 2018, he recorded his first album as leader for the storied ECM Records and his second, “Human” was released in January 2021. As an ardent admirer, it was a treat to chat to Shai about his musical adventures thus far.</p> <p><span class="s1"><b>Show Notes:<br /> </b></span><i>Tracklisting:<br /> </i>&#8211; Mystery &amp; Illusions<br /> &#8211; Human<br /> &#8211; The Flying Shepherd<br /> &#8211; GG<br /> &#8211; In A Sentimental Mood</p> <p><i>Human</i> is out now on ECM Records<br /> <a href="https://www.shaimaestro.com/"><span class="s2">https://www.shaimaestro.com/</span></a></p> <p>Theme music by <a href="http://respectsextet.com/"><span class="s3">The Respect Sextet</span></a><br /> Follow The Jazz Session on <a href="http://twitter.com/jazzsesh"><span class="s3">Twitter</span></a>, <a href="http://instagram.com/thejazzsession"><span class="s3">Instagram</span></a> and <a href="http://facebook.com/thejazzsession"><span class="s3">Facebook</span></a><br /> Subscribe to The Jazz Session’s<a href="https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoCdrWUSAn-GBXogLJfbsxw"><span class="s3"> YouTube Channel</span></a><span class="s1"><br /> </span></p> <p class="p1">Support The Jazz Session by becoming a member at <a href="https://www.patreon.com/thejazzsession"><span class="s3">Patreon.</span></a><br /> For $5 a month you’ll get a weekly bonus episode called Track of the Week, plus early access to every show.

One of her early claims to fame was penning a French vocalise to Coltrane’s behemoth “Giant Steps” but she pays homage to the tradition of French chanteuse with equal ease and, always, superb musicality.

His latest release, “The Bright Side”, features a chordless trio with bassist Dan Loomis and drummer Ernesto Cervini. The album came out on Anzic Records in June 2021 and is a joyous showcase for Joel’s creativity and his longstanding collaboration with Dan and Ernesto. Joel was kind enough to take my call from his new home of Nashville. We chatted about the album, the importance of melody, and he recounted hearing Jane for the first time-one of those “I knew her back when” fairytales.</p> <p><span class="s1"><b>Show Notes:<br /> </b></span><i>Tracklisting:<br /> </i>&#8211; Beeline<br /> &#8211; Cheek to Cheek<br /> &#8211; Thinking of Benny<br /> &#8211; Blued Dharma<br /> &#8211; Boo Dip Dip</p> <p><a href="https://joelfrahm.bandcamp.com/album/the-bright-side"><i>The Bright Side </i></a>is out on Anzic Records now.<br /> Joel will appear with Ernesto Cervini&#8217;s <a href="https://downbeat.com/reviews/detail/rev"><span class="s2">&#8220;Turboprop&#8221;</span></a>  at <a href="https://therex.ca/events/"><span class="s2">The Rex</span></a> in Toronto, Ontario, Canada from 8-11 December 2021</p> <p>Theme music by <a href="http://respectsextet.com/"><span class="s2">The Respect Sextet</span></a><br /> Follow The Jazz Session on <a href="http://twitter.com/jazzsesh"><span class="s2">Twitter</span></a>, <a href="http://instagram.com/thejazzsession"><span class="s2">Instagram</span></a> and <a href="http://facebook.com/thejazzsession"><span class="s2">Facebook</span></a><br /> Subscribe to The Jazz Session’s<a href="https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoCdrWUSAn-GBXogLJfbsxw"><span class="s2"> YouTube Channel</span></a><span class="s1"><br /> </span></p> <p class="p1">Support The Jazz Session by becoming a member at <a href="https://www.patreon.com/thejazzsession"><span class="s2">Patreon.</span></a><br /> For $5 a month you’ll get a weekly bonus episode called Track of the Week, plus early access to every show.

A finalist in the 2007 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition, her new genre-bending quintet with Maeve Gilchrist (celtic harp), Jesse Lewis (electric guitar), Ike Sturm (electric bass), and James Shipp (synthesizers, percussion) coolly blends acoustic and electric instruments, seamlessly weaving her melodious compositions with threads of improvisation. Featuring her pure toned trumpet with electronic effects, this group released an album recorded live in Switzerland, as part of a vinyl-only box set on Newvelle Records in 2019. Lucky for us, this album, Gullfoss, was digitally released on Little Mystery Records in September 2021. It is hands-down one of my favourite releases in 2021-love at first listen.

Her work as a performer transcends traditional musical boundaries, offering authentic jazz insight, sophisticated lineage in world music, and an enlightened approach to new music. While Luciana is a lover of words, having set the poems of Pablo Neruda and Elizabeth Bishop to music, she is also an expert in the art of wordless singing, effortlessly becoming another instrument and texture in small and large ensembles. Her work in this arena has seen her collaborate with Maria Schneider, the Yellowjackets and Vince Mendoza. Her most recent album “Storytellers” sees her team up with Mendoza and the WDR Big Band to celebrate both these worlds, as always, with her impeccable musicianship.</p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1"><b>Show Notes:<br /> </b></span><i>Tracklisting:<br /> </i>&#8211; Choro #3<br /> &#8211; Pra Que Discutir Com Madame<br /> &#8211; Matita Perê<br /> &#8211; The Pretty Road<br /> &#8211; Veranda<br /> &#8211; Everyone Else Is Taken<br /> &#8211; Waters of March</p> <p><a href="https://www.lucianasouza.com/storytellers"><i>Storytellers</i></a> is out on Sunnyside Records now.</p> <p>Theme music by <a href="http://respectsextet.com/"><span class="s2">The Respect Sextet</span></a><br /> Follow The Jazz Session on <a href="http://twitter.com/jazzsesh"><span class="s2">Twitter</span></a>, <a href="http://instagram.com/thejazzsession"><span class="s2">Instagram</span></a> and <a href="http://facebook.com/thejazzsession"><span class="s2">Facebook</span></a><br /> Subscribe to The Jazz Session’s<a href="https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoCdrWUSAn-GBXogLJfbsxw"><span class="s2"> YouTube Channel</span></a><span class="s3"><br /> </span></p> <p class="p1">Support The Jazz Session by becoming a member at <a href="https://www.patreon.com/thejazzsession"><span class="s2">Patreon.</span></a><br /> For $5 a month you’ll get a weekly bonus episode called Track of the Week, plus early access to every show.

I should be impartial and journalistic in my description of all my guests but I’ve never been one to favour professionalism over enthusiasm. Mandisi is one of my favourite South African musicians and composers. A self-proclaimed “choir boy”, he finally released his debut album “Somandla” in 2018 after decades working as the musical director for Isango Ensemble. The wait was worth it. He manages to balance superb songwriting, with classic jazz improvisation, and a live performance energy which inevitably results in audience members singing along, getting up off their seats to dance, so moved by the music. His concerts sell out in seconds (I’m not exaggerating here) and the degree to which he’s adored by South African audiences is both awesome and richly deserved. So I was very eager to have Mandisi on the podcast, in an attempt to share his music with many more people.</span></p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>Sho</strong><strong>w</strong><strong> Notes:</strong></span><em><br /> Tracks played:<br /> </em>&#8211; Kuse Kude<br /> &#8211; Molweni<br /> &#8211; Molo Sisi<br /> &#8211; Somandla<br /> &#8211; Ingoma Yenkedama<br /> &#8211; Ndimthanda</p> <p><em>Somandla </em>is <a href="https://music.apple.com/gb/album/somandla/1440476891">available online</a><span data-offset-key="2dbqg-3-0"><br /> South African musicians mentioned:<br /> </span><a class="_4X_-components-SimpleRichTextEditor-components-LinkSpan--linkSpan" href="https://open.spotify.com/artist/71N9TXfexGfLXxPDJec5iE"><span data-offset-key="2dbqg-4-0">Nomfundo Xaluva</span></a><br /> <a class="_4X_-components-SimpleRichTextEditor-components-LinkSpan--linkSpan" href="https://soundcloud.com/bokani-dyer"><span data-offset-key="2dbqg-6-0">Bokani Dyer</span></a><br /> <a class="_4X_-components-SimpleRichTextEditor-components-LinkSpan--linkSpan" href="https://www.thandintuli.com/"><span data-offset-key="2dbqg-8-0">Thandi Ntuli</span></a></p> <p class="p1">Theme music by <a href="http://respectsextet.com/"><span class="s1">The Respect Sextet</span></a><br /> Follow The Jazz Session on <a href="http://twitter.com/jazzsesh"><span class="s1">Twitter</span></a>, <a href="http://instagram.com/thejazzsession"><span class="s1">Instagram</span></a> and <a href="http://facebook.com/thejazzsession"><span class="s1">Facebook</span></a><br /> Subscribe to The Jazz Session’s<a href="https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoCdrWUSAn-GBXogLJfbsxw"><span class="s1"> YouTube Channel</span></a><span class="s2"><br /> </span></p> <p class="p1">Support The Jazz Session by becoming a member at <a href="https://www.patreon.com/thejazzsession"><span class="s1">Patreon.</span></a><br /> For $5 a month you’ll get a weekly bonus episode called Track of the Week, plus early access to every show.

The musical result of such a kinship is incredibly rich and rare and spans many albums. Their latest record, “What To Wear In The Dark”, was ten years in the making and delicately chronicles world events from the past several years, including the US presidential election to the Sandy Hook tragedy and more. During a stretch of life which included &#8220;loss of health, home, and tribe” as Kate put it, the couple discovered a guiding light in the music of their youth. Thus this offering balances out the two sides of the coin of life, which is all at once immensely challenging and at times heartbreaking yet joyous and, ultimately, hopeful. I chatted to Kate and Keith about the process of making this album, a literal labour of love, with minimal barking interjections from their dog, Juno.</span></p> <p><strong style="font-family:

Since then, she&#8217;s been nominated for a Grammy, released five albums, performed with Wayne Shorter, Kamasi Washington, Becca Stevens and more, and massively influenced several generations of jazz vocalists. After 8 years spent exploring and enjoying motherhood, she made something of return to jazz with her album &#8220;Flor”, released on Edition Records in 2021. The album celebrates both her re-emergence, a blossoming if you will, and her love for the Brazilian sounds that shaped her.

These records find her with her New York trio; on accordion in the avant-folk-jazz group of her husband, trumpeter Natsuki Tamura; in a quartet with some of Japan’s most talented improvising musicians; and in a second trio with both American and Japanese musicians. Far from slowing down in her middle years, Fujii seems to be pushing herself even more relentlessly, searching for new and exciting ways of expressing her musical ideas.</p> <p>/ / /</p> <p>I&#8217;ve been recording conversations with jazz musicians on <em>The Jazz Session</em> since 2007.

He’s an acclaimed pianist and educator in his own right, and his musical history has covered a lot of ground. <em>Homecoming</em> (ELM Records, 2009), his new CD, is a mix of old and new, combining a reissue of 1985 duet session with saxophonist Eddie Harris, and new music recorded in 2009 with fellow New Orleanian pianist Jonathan Batiste. In this interview, Marsalis talks about how his time in the Marines helped build his piano chops; how he got his gig with trumpeter Al Hirt; and what makes New Orleans “fertile ground” for a jazz musician.</p> <p>The post <a href="https://thejazzsession.com/2020/04/02/the-jazz-session-515-remembering-ellis-marsalis-2009-interview/">The Jazz Session #515: Remembering Ellis Marsalis (2009 Interview)</a> appeared first on <a href="https://thejazzsession.com">The Jazz Session</a>.</p>

In this interview, Jordan talks about how a nickel changed her life; her early years on 52nd Street with Charlie Parker; her work with Steve Swallow and the poetry of Robert Creeley; her approach to ballads and teaching; and more.</p> <p><strong>A Special Note:</strong></p> <p>Five hundred episodes. Twelve years. <em>The Jazz Session</em> is, if I do say so myself, a one-of-a-kind archive of the past decade and more of this music. Hundreds of hours of stories by the people who create the music we love. I started this show in 2007 with no idea what I was doing, other than knowing I loved interviewing jazz musicians and thought other people might like it, too, if this whole podcasting thing ever caught on. When I started this show my older son was 4 and my younger son was not yet 1. Now both are over 6’ tall and one is about to start college. And through all these years, all the moves, all the life changes, <em>The Jazz Session</em> has kept going. Now the question becomes, how much further can it go? And the only person who can answer that question is you. I’m only able to make this show because people like you make the switch from listeners to members. I’d like to be able to do so much more with <em>The Jazz Session</em>: more in-person interviews, more festival coverage, more travel. That’s possible only if you decide that you value this show enough to support it. If you do, go to <a href="https://thejazzsession.com/join">thejazzsession.com/join</a> and become a member for $5 or $10 a month. You’ll get bonus episodes, early access to every show, and more. Thank you for being here all these years. Now, become a part of the next 500 episodes by becoming a member.</p> <p>The post <a href="https://thejazzsession.com/2019/12/04/the-jazz-session-500-sheila-jordan/">The Jazz Session #500: Sheila Jordan</a> appeared first on <a href="https://thejazzsession.com">The Jazz Session</a>.</p>
