Customer ReviewsSee All
Just listened to Rit and Lyle interviews, very in depth, illustrative of the formative jazz fusion era, and revealing. No holes barred, gloves are off, and artists talking openly about their actions individual challenges to achieve jazz fluency on their terms.

Very nice interview with Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson
Very interesting to listen to a wildly successful and long-lasting eclectic progressive rocker Ian Anderson talking about his jazz influences.
