Drummer Jerry Granelli Interviewed at AAJ

SOURCE: Published: | 2,172 views
It's easy to mention drummer Jerry Granelli's accomplishments, but hard to really make clear his importance, or the way he's continuously, over forty years, been at the forefront of most of the innovations and new movements in jazz music.

From working with Vince Guaraldi and Denny Zeitlin in the San Francisco area in the 1960s to his own broad-reaching discography with groups including UFB and V16 (not to mention his outstanding Sandhills Reunion Project), Granelli has followed his muse from sound to sound and city to city.

AAJ Contributing Editor Paul Olson spoke with Granelli about the new V16 recording, Sonic Temple (Songlines, 2007), the V16 group, and about a great deal more. He's an extraordinarily clear-minded man, and his words, while frequently punctuated by a gleeful laugh, are always sincere and usually profound.
