Interview April 10, 2007
David Torn released his first CD for ECM in 20 years in April 2007
and talks about it on The Chris & Rob Show. "prezens" features Torn
on guitar, Craig Taborn on keyboards, Tim Berne on alto sax and Tom
Rainey on drums, all notable jazz artists and already a working
group of Berne's. Torn talks about the band and CD, his career and
early influences, and his work as a film score composer. Torn also
discusses the difference between being an 'experimental guitarist'
and a 'theoretical guitarist'. Mr. Torn seemed to get a charge out of
Chris & Rob's ebullience and this makes for a fun interview.
