As a city boy who took a liking to jazz music and extended it into a budding career as a journalist, Orrin Keepnews may have inadvertently veered into the record-producing arena that generated classic albums from a wide range of unforgettable artists. Maybe it was a fortunate accident. Maybe fate.
Maybe it's a word he uses about others: inevitable.
AAJ contributor R.J. DeLuke caught up with Keepnews recently, to discuss his reissue series, The Keepnews Collection, the state of recording today, and a lifetime of experiences with virtually all the legends of modern jazz.
