I’m celebrating my 40th birthday with four new mini-interviews. Vijay Iyer talks about Holding It Down, his new album with Mike Ladd; Mary Halvorson introduces her septet recording Illusionary Sea; Stephan Crump‘s Rosetta Trio is back with Thwirl; and Nicky Schrire discusses her duo album Space and Time. Plus, Brad Linde returns with a preview of the upcoming season of jazz at the Atlas in Washington, D.C.
