The ArkivJazz Podcast: Connie Han, Renee Rosnes & Jacky Terrasson
What does it take to record an album – not just a handful of tracks thrown together, but a coherent statement? Connie Han, Renee Rosnes, and Jacky Terrasson, each a luminary of jazz piano today, have had occasion to find out recently. From musicians, arrangements, and studios to matters of image and persona, almost any aspect of an artist's approach can shift to accommodate an album concept.
