TJS #380: Barry Kernfeld. Barry Kernfeld is the author of Pop Song 
Piracy: Disobedient Music Distribution since 1929 (University of Chicago 
Press, 2011); The Story of Fake Books: Bootlegging Songs to Musicians 
(Scarecrow, 2006); and What To Listen For In Jazz (Yale University 
Press, 1995). He may be most well known as the editor of both editions 
of the New Grove Dictionary of Jazz, a massive undertaking that sought 
to define the major players, instruments and theories of jazz around the 
world. In this interview, Kernfeld talks about his early years in San 
Francisco during the height of the rock explosion; his move to Cornell 
in the 70s and the unexpectedly progressive atmosphere he found there; 
how he came to edit the New Grove Dictionary of Jazz and the response to 
its first edition; and his subsequent investigations of song piracy and 
fake books. LISTEN: http://bit.ly/LNI5n3

TJS #381: Harris Eisenstadt. Harris Eisenstadt’s two new records are 
Canada Day III (Songlines, 2012) and Canada Day Octet (482 Music, 2012). 
In this interview, Eisenstadt talks about expanding existing quintet 
music to octet form; the evolution of the Canada Day band and what its 
longevity allows him to do as a composer; and the life of a touring 
musician. LISTEN: http://bit.ly/K5YCBo
