All About Jazz Announces New Column Featuring Archival Intervews with Jazz Greats
All About Jazz is pleased to announce that Bob Kenselaar has joined our growing international team of contributing writers. In addition to new live coverage, and interviews like his recent Catching Up With Monty Alexander, Bob has obtained permission to reprint a series of interviews that he contributed to The Aquarian Weekly in the 1970s with artists ranging from Dave Brubeck, Stan Getz and Herbie Hancock to Herbie Mann and Sonny Rollins.
Bob's first installment in his new column, Jazz in the Aquarian Age, is an interview with Bill Evans that finds the sometimes mercurial pianist/bandleader in an open and talkative mood, discussing the recording of his recently released Affinity (Warner Bros., 1979) which, in addition to his then-working trio of bassist Marc Johnson and drummer Eliot Zigmund, included flautist/saxophonist Larry Schneider and harmonica master Toots Thielemans.
