was interviewed on WHCR 90.3FM “The Voice of Harlem", January 5th, 2014 by Lamon Fenner on Lamon's Jazz Break @ 8.

Jansen discusses his first new release in nearly two years, a new quartet album entitled, RONIN. He talks with Lamon about the deeper and more philosophical aspects of his new release, Ronin.

“The plight of the Ronin draws many similarities to what I have observed with those of us who adopt the way, or follow a life of the study of the art and craft of instrumental improvised music. Live performance and revenue streams have become increasingly scarce as society and technology have changed. However, like the Ronin, we artists persist as warriors and keepers of the flame, devoting our lives to the propagation of the Music. We have become drifters, outsiders, masterless and seeking the truth of who we are as artists and people.

Ronin was conceived with the inspiration and perspective of the ancient masterless samurai. I have reflected on my own trials, tribulations and triumphs along the path I have chosen. From reflections and life events I was inspired to write this collection of original compositions. I sincerely hope that you will join me on my journey along the path. “ —B.J. Jansen
