Alvin Fielder Interview

Posted: January 21, 2012 by Mike in Interviews

From Houston Music:

Alvin Fielder helped found the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM) in Chicago, worked for the Nixon Administration and spent much of his life running the family drug store. However, hearing him talk about all of his accomplishments by phone from his Mississippi home, winning Nameless Sound‘s “Resounding Vision Award” could very well be his favorite achievement.
