I recently caught up with legendary vibraphonist Gary Burton on a session we recorded together for the Japanese singer Mizuho at Q Division in Boston. Gary talks about his favorite drummers, how he got started in the business, working with Stan Getz, his online course, and much more.
I’m very happy to have caught up with Andy Narell backstage at our gig at Hartford University on November 21, 2013. In this interview, Andy and I discuss volume, steel bands, his concept of writing, recording and arranging, the importance of knowing the music (and not just the beat), Paris as a musical center, and much more. Enjoy!
