I know that Jason Crane stopped doing the Jazz Session Podcast in October of 2012, but he has been so kind to all of us and has left the archive available for all of us to enjoy. There are so many great interviews in the archives (Jack DeJohnette, David Liebman, William Parker, Nate Wooley, Matana Roberts, John D’earth….and on and on and on and on!!) (also a few RVA musicians). It’s such a great resource for all of us musicians, and for the public at large, interested in learning more about so many great musicians of today. I find myself continuing to go back to Jason’s site to listen to interviews that I’ve already listened to or to see if there are interviews with musicians that I’d love to hear talk about their music and their art. (and also to discover new musicians that I might not have heard of).
I just want to share this site again for anyone interested….and I hope that this great resource stays available for a long time.

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting and hosting Jason Crane, the creator of the Jazz Session Podcast, while he was in Richmond. Jason has been on a “Jazz or Bust Tour” of the country, traveling by Greyhound Bus to various cities and interviewing musicians along the way. (as well as reading his poetry wherever possible). You can find out more information about the Jazz Session, Jason’s poetry and the Jazz or Bust Tour on his website at http://jasoncrane.org/
While he was in town we were able to sit down and do an interview about the ScottClark4tet, our new album “A&B” and all things Richmond. Here is the link to listen to the interview and a link to the digital version of our record.

This is a great thing that Jason is doing and if you would like to help support him on his tour you can do so by making a donation to his trip or by helping him find places to stay along the way.
You can follow him on twitter as well at @JasonDCrane
If you’d like to hear more interviews, Jason has interviewed many Richmond musicians or musicians with ties to Richmond (and just about any other jazz musician you could want to listen to). Just check out the Jazz Session website to hear interviews with Reggie Pace, Matt White, Darius Jones, Scott Burton and others.
