Eric Reed on “progress” in Jazz


“The idea that art “moves forward” is misleading anyway; art doesn’t move, art is. Is there a living soul in Jazz more advanced than John Coltrane? Who is beyond Duke Ellington?” – Eric Reed, from his website, I had the pleasure of interviewing Eric for an upcoming article in DownBeat about JALC’s forthcoming collection of free jazz education videos that feature him, among many other jazz artists and historians.
