David Torn: Back From Mercury

By Published: July 1, 2007
On the new episode of The Jazz Session, Jason Crane interviews David Torn, a man of many talents. He's a film composer whose music you've heard in Friday Night Lights, Believe In Me, and The Order. He's also contributed tones and textures to films like this year's Best Picture winner, The Departed, and the 2000 hit Traffic. Before his film days, he was known for daring musical collaborations on albums such as Cloud About Mercury (ECM, 1987). And he's worked as a guitarist and/or producer for everyone from David Bowie and David Sylvian to John Legend and Tori Amos. David Torn has returned to ECM after two decades for prezens (ECM, 2007), an adventurous record that features Tim Berne, Craig Taborn and Tom Rainey.
