The Jazz Session #561: Anna Webber

Saxophonist and flute player Anna Webber has a new double album called Idiom (Pi Recordings). In this interview, Webber talks about how she took inspiration for the compositions on the album from extended instrumental techniques; her recent residency in Germany; her plans for after the pandemic; and her work with … Bruce Springsteen? Sure, why not.

CONCERT NOTE: The CD release party for Idiom is scheduled for September 23, 2021 at Roulette in Brooklyn.
