For Immediate Release
THE LOST GENERATION: OUTSIDE THE MAINSTREAM
During the first week of December the Podcast THE LOST GENERATION: OUTSIDE THE MAINSTREAM will be launched. Hosted by exemplar free jazz drummer, composer, and poet William Hooker, each episode will be an in-depth interview with the various artists, producers, and supporters who have made significant contributions to the cultural landscape of the free jazz movement.
William Hooker, a musician at the forefront of this movement, will provide his listeners an opportunity to hear from a broad spectrum of participants who are the creators of this unique art form.
Each interview will engage a single individual in conversation with respect to how they came to this music, how they, along with their peers embraced free jazz, and dedicated their lives to creating outside the mainstream. Principally focusing on the generation of musicians who came up in the 70s, the series will also pay homage to the progenitors of the free jazz movement, as well as explore the impact and challenges faced by today’s torch bearers.
The hope is that the listener will seek out this music that has made significant changes to the cultural landscape and will support its continual growth.
Each podcast will be available through YouTube:
