In Studio: Ben Allison

Thursday, January 12, 2012

On his latest release, bassist and composer Ben Allison tackles a whole lot of standards – though not the sort you typically find on a jazz album. “Action-Refraction,” (which NPR, Time Out NY and eMusic all placed on their Best of 2011 lists) features inventive covers of songs from PJ Harvey, The Carpenters, and Neil Young, amongst others. Allison takes a break from rehearsals for a Carnegie Hall gig to stop by our studio.

Ben Allison will perform at Carnegie Hall on Friday, February 3. For more information, click here.
