Composer/Reed Multi-Instrumentalist Frank Glover Interviewed at AAJ...And More!


Sign in to view read count
Intelligent and outspoken, Frank Glover began playing clarinet when he was eleven years old. On entering college, he trained for nearly two years at Indiana University before striking out on his own; upon the independent release of Politico in 2004, he was signed by Owl Studios and the album was re-released under that label in 2009. Initially training as a classical clarinetist who also plays saxophone, the music of John Coltrane grabbed him; he experienced a musical epiphany as a result. An institution in Indianapolis, Glover has a long history enveloped in a diverse range of musical styles. Abacus (Owl Studios, 2010), a journey across many colors and spaces, demonstrates the range that is possible when a composer of Glover's imagination takes a jazz quartet and weaves it seamlessly within the workings of a classical orchestra.

AAJ Contributor Elena Gillespie spoke with Glover recently, to find out more about his work, his life and his plans for the future. You can read about all this and more in Elena's interview, Frank Glover: Going a Different Way, published today at AAJ.
