Hello friends!

The “Jazz Or Bust” Tour Starts June 1: I leave Friday, June 1, for 
Wilmington, Delaware – the first stop on my tour. I'll be interviewing 
guitarist Judith Kay in Wilmington before heading on Sunday to State 
College, PA, for a visit with family and an interview with cellist TJ 
Borden. Then it's off to Shepherdstown (WV), Washington DC, Richmond 
(VA), Charlottesville (VA), Nashville (TN), Knoxville (TN) … and the 
list goes on.

Follow The Tour: I'll be posting my daily tour diary, new poems, 
recordings of my poetry readings, photos and more at 
http://jasoncrane.org. In fact, the diaries from my final two days in 
NYC are there now. You'll also find a list of my scheduled poetry 
readings there. And of course the podcasts from the tour will be at 
http://thejazzsession.com as they always are. And you can follow me on 
Twitter at @JasonDCrane.

Figurations (Sunnyside, 2012), recorded live at The Jazz Gallery in New

Mirror and Generations. In this interview, Okazaki talks about the 
series and the different aspects of his music he explored on each album; 
the Golden Mean and Fibonacci numbers and how they figure into his 
compositions; why it was important for him to record a live album; and 
how his artwork informs his music and vice versa LISTEN: 

TJS #377: Nicky Schrire. Vocalist Nicky Schrire’s debut album is Freedom 
Flight (Circavision, 2012). In this interview, Schrire talks about the 
diverse and often daring songs she’s chosen for her debut; the impact on 
her life and music of Kate McGarry, Peter Eldridge and Bobby McFerrin; 
her South African upbringing and switch from saxophone to voice; and why 
she made the move to New York. LISTEN: http://bit.ly/L20RXl
