THE JAZZ SESSION #66: MILES OKAZAKI. Jason Crane interviews guitarist and
composer Miles Okazaki about his album Generations (Sunnyside, 2009). The
album finds Okazaki mining some of the same territory from his debut
record, Mirrors, but this time with a focus on in-depth exploration and
group improvisation. Featuring standout work from saxophonists Miguel
Zenón, David Binney, and Christof Knoche; along with vocalist Jen Shyu,
drummer Dan Weiss, and bassist Jon Flaugher. In this interview, Okazaki
talks about the philosophy behind the album, and why the music also stands
on its own.
