Drummer/Composer Harris Eisenstadt Interviewed at AAJ

SOURCE: Published:
Harris Eisenstadt Over the past decade, drummer, bandleader and composer Harris Eisenstadt has been a force in improvised music, active in both Los Angeles and New York (where he now resides). It's a testament to his creativity and energy that his ensembles have run the gamut from free-bop in the vein of post-Blue Note small groups, to orchestral works and the recasting of traditional Senegalese popular song into improvisational vehicles. Canada Day is the name of his latest ensemble and disc (Clean Feed, 2009)--a love letter to modern jazz of the 1960s and to his birthplace. Though busy with both family and music, Eisenstadt's artistic pace shows no sign of slowing.

AAJ Contributor Clifford Allen spoke with Eisenstadt recently, about his various projects, travels, education and cutting his teeth on the Left Coast scene before relocating to New York.
