David Torn, Experimental or Theoretical Guitarist?
In April, 2007 David Torn released his first CD for ECM in twenty years, 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. Torn seemed to get a charge out of Chris & Rob's ebullience, making for a fun interview.
