Episode 22: Itai Weissman

In this episode my guest is the Israeli saxophonist and EWI player Itai Weissman. We talk about his band Used to be New and their record Popular Emotions as well as his love of the EWI, its history and its status as a misunderstood instrument.

Episode 14: Robert van der Padt

In this episode I’m joined by pianist, bandleader and booking agent/promoter Robert van der Padt. We discuss his band Tyranni Flock’s new EP, the process of recording and releasing his music, and how he founded and runs his own booking agency Bird Call Bookings.

Robert recommended Christian Scott's latest releases as part of his centennial trilogy, specifically Diaspora. For any self promoting musicians, he also recommended Matt Fripp's website Jazzfuel.com, which is full of great resources and information.

Please visit Robert's website for tour dates, info about his booking agency and to purchase his music.
