Pianist Myra Melford’s new CD “Life Carries Me This Way” features solo piano interpretations of drawings by modern artist Don Reich. She performs songs from the album, talks about turning art into music, and joins host Eric Felten in some Chicago boogie-woogie.
The great Duke Ellington described the best music as being "beyond category." "Beyond Category with Eric Felten" brings the best of jazz, blues, swing, and more.
Join host Eric Felten in the clubs around Washington D.C. for a behind-the-scenes, intimate conversation with world-class musicians working in jazz and blues. Part interview, part jam session, explore the history, rhythms and sounds of great music.
Your host, a jazz trombonist in his own right, interviews great artists - and sits in to perform with them, taking the audience on an unpredictable musical adventure.
