The Jazz Session #376: Miles Okazaki

Posted under Guitarists & Podcast

Guitarist Miles Okazaki’s new album is Figurations (Sunnyside, 2012), recorded live at The Jazz Gallery in New York City. It’s the third and final album in the series that includes Mirror and Generations. In this interview, Okazaki talks about the series and the different aspects of his music he explored on each album; the Golden Mean and Fibonacci numbers and how they figure into his compositions; why it was important for him to record a live album; and how his artwork informs his music and vice versa.

NOTE: This is Okazaki’s second appearance on The Jazz Session. Listen to our first conversation from 2009.

    You said “y’all” at 44:53. Looks like some part of you has already headed south.

    Hah! I tweeted that very fact the other day when I noticed it. To be fair, half my family is from Kentucky.
