Cornetist Taylor Ho Bynum Interviewed at AAJ


Sign in to view read count
Cornetist Taylor Ho Bynum is at the forefront of a younger generation of creative musicians in New York. He combines thrilling improvisation with stealthy composition, unconfined by genre. Best known for his association with Anthony Braxton, Bynum has played a leading role in the realization of the saxophonist's recent oeuvre. There has been a deserved upsurge in Bynum's profile of late, culminating in the release of two excellent, but very different, recordings: True Events (482 Music, 2007), a duet with drummer Tomas Fujiwara, and The Middle Picture (Firehouse 12, 2007) by his sextet. The latter is on the new Firehouse 12 label, in which he is a partner.

AAJ contributor John Sharpe caught up with Bynum during a recent week performing at the Iridium in New York with Anthony Braxton. The in-depth interview provides great insight into the inner workings and practical challenges of making music that's far from conventional but never less than completely rewarding.
