A few weeks ago, Jason Weissman told me about his adventures in podcasting and being an audiophile. He asked about an interview with me, but it's really a conversation between two people who love music, live performance, and a tribute to how many terrific musicians are making music.
The first part of the podcast is a pretty thorough look into my own history as a musician. Even my father said he learned things about me and he's 91. LOL! I enjoy looking back at those years of teaching music and playing in ensembles - jazz, classical and avant-garde.
From there we talk about how Blue Coast Records selects musicians and the juxtaposition between NPR's Tiny Desk and our Extended Sound Environment (E.S.E.) recording technique. Perhaps I should consider naming the process to something more "attainable" like “Blue Coast's Living Room” or “Live Living Room” and hook up a few cameras. Hmmm... maybe.
I don't think he asked the question, "Does digital sound better?" At least, I don't think I answered it. That could have been a 90 minute conversation in itself, no easy answer.
If you'd like to watch, it's a long one; 90 minutes. The control room with Jimi Hendrix and the flashing X-Mas lights are still there. :)
Enjoy your week!
