Phil Freeman, Burning Ambulance
The latest episode of the Burning Ambulance podcast features an interview with violinist Meg Okura and soprano saxophonist Logan Richardson. She leads the Pan Asian Chamber Jazz Ensemble, whose latest album, Ima Ima, will be released in May; his most recent solo disc, Sopranoville, came out last year.
In our interview, they discuss their marriage and their creative relationship, their individual work and approach to their respective instruments, Meg’s religious/spiritual journey (she was raised an evangelical Christian in Japan, became an atheist, then converted to Judaism), the challenges of making and marketing their music themselves, and much more. It’s a long and very interesting conversation, and I hope you enjoy it.
