Genre: 
Date: 
Saturday, March 8, 2014 - 4:00pm

Celebrate Women's History Month when pianist, composer and Guggenheim fellow Myra Melford talks with host Bonnie Johnson. Melford's 2013 solo piano CD, Life Carries Me This Way (Firehouse 12 Records), has a simple cover yet comprises a colorful selection of "compositions inspired by the artwork of her friend, the late Sacramento-based artist Don Reich (1931-2010)". Among her many pursuits, Melford unites several musicians with ongoing projects that include live and recorded sessions with bassist Mark Dresser,  drummer Matt Wilson, clarinetists Ben Goldberg and Marty Ehrlich among others;  Mentors have included Ran Blake and Worcester native Jaki Byard.  Currently Associate Professor, Improvisation and Jazz at UC Berkley, the arts advocate begins a sabbatical this spring with a stop at Lilypad, Cambridge on March 14th.  Catch Colors of Jazz to hear more about Ms. Melford's musical journey into "collaborative creativity". Tune in at 4pm.
