Pianist Lynne Arriale‘s new album is Chimes of Freedom (Challenge Records, 2020). The record is a direct reply to our current American sociopolitical environment. In this interview, Arriale talks about speaking truth to power; mortality and the artistic process; her work as an educator; and a lot more.
