THE JAZZ SESSION #79: MYRA MELFORD. Jason Crane interviews pianist Myra 
Melford. Melford is active with many groups and on many recordings, 
including this year’s Under The Water (Libra, 2009) with pianist Satoko 
Fujii. In this interview, Melford talks about her early contact with 
Leroy Jenkins, Henry Threadgill and other AACM musicians; her pursuit of 
an individual voice; and the role that her meditation and martial arts 
practices have played in her music.
