Cellist Joan Jeanrenaud Interviewed at All About Jazz

Playing it safe is a concept in which cellist Joan Jeanrenaud has total disinterest. Her deep, varied career reflects a restless creative spirit that most recently manifested itself on Pop-Pop (Deconet, 2010), her duo album with producer and percussionist PC Muñoz. The disc seamlessly blends cello, classical, electronica, and hip-hop influences. But, perhaps, the most important element is fun, something Jeanrenaud and Muñoz clearly had a lot of when making the disc. Unlike Jeanrenaud's carefully-architected previous albums, Pop-Pop found her and Muñoz literally making up the album as they went along in the studio. It's a record driven by visceral creative impulses and a desire to capture the duo's collective muse at its most riveting.

Anil Prasad, author of Innerviews (Abstract Logix, 2010), spoke with Jeanrenaud about her longstanding musical relationship with Muñoz, her even lengthier tenure with Kronos Quartet, and a scoop about that groundbreaking string quartet that will come as great news for fans of this equally innovative and forward-thinking cellist.
