Pianist Bill Carrothers Interviewed at AAJ

SOURCE: Published:
Bill Carrothers A conversation with pianist Bill Carrothers reveals an unusual man; one who is to-the-point and forthright to a fault, perhaps, and one who's words spill from his mind unfiltered by anyone's expectations.

--seems to spill from his fingers. It's a conversation that careens from jazz, global warming and baseball to home restoration projects, the difficulties of reroofing his Mass City, Michigan home, James Joyce and reloading his own bullets. But mostly it's music.

AAJ Contributor Dan McClenaghan spoke with Carrothers recently, about the making of Joy Spring, upcoming projects, and how his approach to piano is, in baseball terms, more Kent Hrbek than Tony Gwynn.
