The Jazz Session #144: Chris Kelsey

Chris Kelsey is both a jazz musician and critic — one of the rare people who straddles both worlds. His new CD is Not Cool (…as in “The Opposite of Paul Desmond”) (Tzazz Krytyk, 2009). In this interview, Kelsey talks about his approach to composition and performance; how his work as a critic has impacted his career as a musician; and how blogging has changed the way he writes about music.
