Samo Šalamon & Ethan Iverson interview

Jul 15, 2022 New interview from the Dr. Jazz Talks interview series, this time Ethan Iverson – fantastic pianist and composer, with a great last trio album Every Note is True…

We talk about Ethan's beginnings and influences, being a bandleader, playing with Billy Hart, The Bad Plus, Jack DeJohnette and others, the US jazz scene, his improvisational and compositional approaches, etc…

Interesting comments on the influence of Bill Evans on jazz piano and how Iverson deliberately decide to side-step it in favor of older stride-influenced styles.
