Rachel Barton Pine - Blues Dialogues on KDFC: State of the Arts

KDFC: State Of the Arts

Violinist Rachel Barton Pine explores two of her longtime interests in her latest album, Blues Dialogues… shining a spotlight on underrepresented black composers, and (as a native Chicagoan) the Blues. It continues a project that she's been working on for 15 years or so, compiling a database and resource guide for players to learn more about the composers, and shows how many tinged their contemporary compositions with the language or feel of the Blues. If you sign up for KDFC's eNotes weekly newsletter (look in the orange box in the right-hand margin of this page) you'll get a free download of a track from the disc this week.
