Joe Lovano on the Music of Wayne Shorter & More
Video interview with the acclaimed saxophonist and bandleader taped at the 2012 Newport Jazz Festival
By Lee Mergner
During the 2012 Newport Jazz Festival, JazzTimes set up a make-shift video production studio backstage inside the old barracks of Fort Adams. During two afternoons, a succession of artists—including Jack DeJohnette, Jason Moran, Christian McBride, Linda Oh, Donny McCaslin, Dafnis Prieto and several others—came in to talk about the festival, jazz education and their own projects. We have been posting these interviews at jazztimes.com. You can also see more of these video interviews from the Newport Jazz Festival (in 2011 and 2012), as well as from the Jazz Cruise, at the JazzTimes YouTube channel.
