Rollins and Threadgill on The Jazz Sessions

Here's a shout out for Jason Crane's The Jazz Sessions.

Together with Stef at Free Jazz blog, the lovely guys at Destination: OUT!, npr's A Blog Supreme, Bad Plus' Do the Math (and, not to forget, my main man Tom Hull, Nate Chinen and the boys at NY Times, Gary Giddins, and a host of others), Crane is doing as much as anybody in spreading the word of jazz on the internet right now. His interview series takes an all-embracing view on the jazz world, and is conducted with equal parts curiosity, knowledge and respect. In the past, he's done sessions with such Perfect Sounds faves as Cooper-Moore, Vijay Iyer, John Hollenbeck, Matt Lavelle, Steve Lehman, Joe Morris, Mike Reed, and Matthew Shipp.

If you're unfamiliar with the series, now's a good a time as any to start listening, because this week, Crane brings out the big guns with interviews with Sonny Rollins and, available from Thursday 29th, Henry Threadgill.

Make yourself a fresh batch of coffee, sit down, and listen!
