I have made my love for the Jazz Session well known in my music reviews – Jason Crane does a great job of finding lesser known folks from a broad spectrum of jazz styles and getting them to open up and talk about all sorts of stuff. He also integrates music into the interview in a way that allows you not only to hear the tunes but get inside what is happening. Over the last few years Jason has interviewed more than a hundred jazz musicians, and now his show has passed 1 million downloads!
Here are the basics about the show:
The Jazz Session is a member-supported online interview show focusing on in-depth conversations with jazz musicians.
Since its inception in 2007, there have been more one million downloads of The Jazz Session episodes. The Jazz Session focuses on in-depth interviews with jazz musicians, along with occasional interviews with producers, authors and others in the jazz world. The show’s mission is to chronicle the lives and opinions of musicians who make creative improvised music, without regard to artificial genres or labels. The Jazz Session is presented by All About Jazz, the Web’s leading source for jazz news, reviews, mp3 downloads and more. Every episode of the show is available here at thejazzsession.com for free. You can also subscribe for free via iTunes or an RSS reader.
The Jazz Session can only survive with the support of its members. Please become a member today.
Congratulations to Jason on this milestone and I recommend everyone with an interest in jazz music make sure to check it out!
