New Myra Melford Interview


Pianist/composer Myra Melford talks about her forthcoming release, The Whole Tree Gone (Firehouse 12 Records), in a new interview published yesterday in the online arts magazine, At Length.

“Myra Melford is one of the most exciting musicians working in any genre,” writes Music Editor Ehren Gresehover in the introduction, “and though she’s most frequently associated with the more avant garde circles of jazz, sometimes it seems as if she’s working in every genre. Drawing from influences as diverse as the blues of her native Chicago and the North Indian harmonium music she studied as a Fulbright Scholar in 2000, her music defies even the bravest attempts at categorization.”
