Trombonist, composer and educator Chris Washburne has added another title--activist. Washburne and his longtime partners, The SYOTOS Band, are making a bold political statement on their new album, Land of Nod
(Jazzheads, 2006). Like all bold political statements, this one is ... danceable? You read that right. Washburne manages to pack the same punch on the dance floor as always, but he's coupling it with an ideological message intended to give listeners a meaning behind the music.
AAJ Contributor Jason Crane recently interviewed Washburne for The Jason Crane Show, his regular podcast about arts and activism.
