Tom Rainey Interviewed

Drummer Tom Rainey‘s impact on the New York scene has been immense and often unappreciated (not to mention that his influence has reached far beyond New York). I recently had the opportunity to speak with him about his music and relished the opportunity to discuss his trio (which includes saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock and guitarist Mary Halvorson) as well as his unique sense of rhythm. Rainey released a third record with his trio, Hotel Grief, on Intakt Records, at his annual December 30 gig at Cornelia Street Cafe (NYC), and is set to embark on a four-country European tour in April.
