Today's program began with an interview with pianist and composer Satoko Fujii and her husband, trumpeter Natsuki Tamura. Fujii's ma-do group will be kicking off the 2011 Undead Jazz Festival tonight at Le Poisson Rouge.
This show featured saxophonist Sonny Simmons live in studio, talking about recent projects and his work with musicians like Prince Lasha and Eric Dolphy. For the last 30 minutes, we heard saxophonist and composer Ingrid Laubrock in an interview discussing her compositions, improvisations, and upcoming performances. Both will be appearing at the Vision Festival XVI at Abrons Art Center this weekend.
