Interviews available onlinewww.ashgate.com.
I’m really pleased to be publishing them finally in this form. My original intention was simply to make a book of interviews with composers and improvisers whose work I admired – nothing more. The eventual volume, which contained these interviews and articles by other writers, was not a ‘research companion’ in that sense and justifiably has come in for some criticism as a result. I hope making the texts available in this way will allow them to reach a wider readership and clarify my original intention.
