Alexander von Schlippenbach
This spring, Alexander von Schlippenbach celebrated his 70th birthday--on April 7th, 2008, to be precise. By way of celebration, he undertook a short tour of England in the company of Eddie Provost. On some dates von Schlippenbach and Provost each played a solo set and then played together; on others, Schlippenbach also played with Provost's trio, including bassist Joe Williamson and saxophonist Alan Wilkinson. Schlippenbach and Provost (minus the trio) played at Blackheath in south London, and the following day the pair were recording a session for BBC Radio 3's Jazz On 3 at The Vortex, where von Schlippenbach agreed to be interviewed.

AAJ Contributor John Eyles spoke with von Schlippenbach about his recent tour, ongoing work with Paul Lytton and Evan Parker and more.
