Myra Melford Interview

Source: The Log Journal.

Myra Melford has never been one to coast on past achievements, no matter how impressive they might be. In the nearly three decades she’s spent in the public eye, the accomplished piano improviser, composer, and bandleader has worked her way through a wide span of ensembles and projects, putting her poetic stamp on each while also responding vigorously and sympathetically to each setting, situation, and fellow musician. She’d named one of her most famous ensembles The Same River Twice, repurposing a famous Greek citation to evoke the futility of repetition and the continuous nature of change.
