In this episode:
We talk with musician Jody Pou.

Here are Doug's notes from the interview.

From email:

“I recorded this album because while I was at the conservatory, I always felt as though Baroque music and jazz had a lot in common. So, I thought, I'll do both. In the same album!

The album will have 5 Baroque pieces with archilutist Thomas Dunford, and 5 or so jazz pieces intermingled, which I recorded with the bassist, RaphaĆ«l Dever. There will also be some Baroque cello pieces played by Elena Andreyev, of Les Arts Florissants in there.”
