Today, Heart of the Ghost releases a new record, their fourth, Live at Rhizome. Heart of the Ghost is a collaborative trio of alto saxophonist Jarrett Gilgore, bassist Luke Stewart, and drummer Ian McColm. I had the pleasure of booking them for one of their first gigs at my loft concert series, New Revolution Arts, and have found the band riveting ever since. Prolific as ever, the band has released three previous records. I had the opportunity to speak at length with Jarrett Gilgore on Labor Day weekend in 2019 and then updated the interview recently. Gilgore is a refreshingly humble, yet intensely committed artist who has a transformative presence on the bandstand. He has a unique musical voice and is one of the visionaries of the Baltimore music scene.
