Cellist Helen Gillet has a new album with woodwind player Jeff Coffin (interview) called Let It Shine. In this interview, Gillet talks about how the pair came together at her series in New Orleans; the process of creating the music for the recording; how parameters can lead to increased freedom; the idea of a lifelong teacher; and a lot more.
