Marilyn Crispell is a master improviser, a musician of the highest order. To me she embodies focus, presence and selflessness. And I just love the way she plays the piano! Here are some of my favorite records of Marilyn’s:
- Nothing Ever Was, Anyway: The Music of Annette Peacock
- For Coltrane
- Pianosolo – A Concert In Berlin
- Live In Zürich
We talk about her ability to focus, the communal spirit of group interaction, leaving space, teaching, Annette Peacock’s music, working with Paul Motian & Gary Peacock, composition and so much more. Enjoy!
