About this image
Downtown music impressario Glenn Leslie sits down with legendary jazz guitarist Bern Nix to discuss issues small and large in the world of jazz. Nix is humble and wise, does not suffer fools ('specially in the music business), has the amusingly cynical tone familiar to working musicians, has a sharp historical viewpoint, and picks a number of tracks to illustrate the conversation. A detailed transcript full of discussion about his own influences and further observations on music including a discussion of Ornette Colman's Harmolodic theory, of which Bern Nix is a master, appears online at allaboutjazz.com.
