JazzCast Ep. 17: Brad Linde

square_final.jpg

Summer greetings! Welcome to episode 17 of the JazzCast, where you can find curated listening sessions with jazz musicians. Today I bring you an interview with DC area jazz saxophonist and educator Brad Linde.

Many people know of Brad as the leader of the Bohemian Caverns Jazz Orchestra as well as his cool “Brad Linde Ensemble,” but his musical direction has changed in the last few years to move more toward free improvisation. And so we have the opportunity to be introduced to some of his new music here: the Team Players, Underwater Ghost, and his latest dixieland-meets free jazz venture Dix Out. Team Players is currently on tour across the United States, so be sure to check them out if they come into your town. Please see their schedule listed below. They just released a CD on July 15th, so please be sure to support them by purchasing their album on CDBaby! Also, the Brad Linde Expanded Ensemble will be at the Jazz Gallery on August 12th in NYC to play the music of Australian composer Elliott Hughes. (psst – we have an interview with Elliott Hughes coming soon too!)
