Interview with Jason Stein 


Jason Stein is one of the few musicians working today focused entirely upon bass clarinet as a jazz and improvisational instrument. Originally from Long Island, New York, Stein studied at Bennington College with Charles Gayle and Milford Graves, and at the University of Michigan with Donald Walden and Ed Sarath. In 2005, Stein relocated to Chicago and has since recorded for such labels as Leo, Delmark, Atavistic, 482 Music and Clean Feed. Stein has performed throughout the US and Europe with a number of different bands as both a leader and a sideman.
