Today’s episode of the popular jazz interview podcast The Jazz Session features an in-depth, hour-long interview with alto saxophonist Darius Jones and pianist Matthew Shipp. The duo’s acclaimed new AUM Fidelity recording, Cosmic Lieder, was released earlier this month and its debut live performance is coming Wednesday, April 27th at Jazz Standard In New York. Topics of discussion include Jones and Shipp’s previous experience with each other’s music, how they first met, why Jones prepared for the session like a boxer, what the recording experience was like, their philosophies for duo recordings, the differences between an artist and a musician, and the value of intergenerational collaborations.
