Saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock’s most recent album is The Madness Of Crowds (Intakt, 2011) with the band Sleepthief. She’s also part of the trio Paradoxical Frog with Kris Davis and Tyshawn Sorey. In this interview, Laubrock talks about her self-taught entry into improvised music; her collaborations with a variety of musicians; and why she went back to study standards even though she doesn’t often play them.

Programming note: Due to a technical problem, I lost part of this interview. My apologies to Ingrid. I’ll have her back on the show for a longer conversation.
