Hi Yoko fans, this is Jason Crane, the webmaster for this site. Yoko was kind enough to let me use her blog to mention a project of my own. It’s a podcast called The Jazz Session, which features extended interviews with jazz musicians from all across the spectrum of this music.
The show’s 11th year started on September 1, featuring an interview with flugelhorn player Dmitri Matheny (listen to the episode). New episodes come out on the 1st and 15th of each month. The next episode, coming out on 9/15, features vocalist Sara Gazarek.
You can hear more than 400 past episode for free at thejazzsession.com. Just click on “Archive.” You’ll find interviews with Sonny Rollins, Gerald Wilson, Jack DeJohnette, Maria Schneider, Tierney Sutton, Sam Rivers, Kenny Garrett, and hundreds more. You can also become a supporter of the show for just $5 a month at patreon.com/thejazzsession. If you become a member, you get a bonus episode each month.
