Pablo Held Investigates

I had been admiring Melissa Aldana’s playing and music for many years, when I suddenly received a message from her, saying that she really liked the podcast. I was flattered and amazed that she would reach out to me. We made plans to do an interview and here it is! We talked about learning from Melissa’s heroes Sonny Rollins, Jimmy Heath and Mark Turner and how she incorporates these influences into her world, about leading a band, practicing creativity, her latest album 12 Stars and the process behind it, self-doubt/self-acceptance and much more.After following Melissa’s musical journey from afar for a long time, it was great to now get a more personal and deeper view into her process. It felt like we were hanging out. Come and hang out with us!

Ron Miles (Indianápolis, 1963) trompetista y compositor, Alexander Flood, Melissa Aldana y Perico Sambeat

El PUERTO DEL JAZZ

Ron Miles (Indianápolis, 1963) fué trompetista, cornetista y compositor. La familia se mudó a Denver, Colorado, cuando él tenía once años, en parte porque sus padres pensaron que el clima de la montaña sería mejor para su asma, curioso que una persona con esta enfermedad se dedicara a este instrumento. Obtuvo una beca para la Escuela de Música de Manhattan en la ciudad de Nueva York , donde obtuvo una maestría. Recibió reconocimiento nacional tocando con la Duke Ellington Orchestra . El guitarrista Bill Frisell contó con su trompeta en multitud de sus trabajos. En su carrera firmó una quincena de proyectos y en el último lo fichó el sello Blue Note, hoy lo escuchamos en “Mommy On Top” [Woman's Day – 1997], “Days of Wine and Roses” [Quiver – 2012] y “Rainbow Sign” [Rainbow Sign – 2020]. La segunda parte la iniciamos con el segundo trabajo del percusionista australiano de 25 años Alexander Flood “LDN” [The Space Between – 2022], continuamos con la última obra de uno de los saxos tenores mejores de la actualidad la chilena Melissa Aldana “Los Ojos de Chile” [12 Stars – 2022] y concluimos con el estreno del gran saxofonista Perico Sambeat “El rastro de Hiva” [Atlantis – 2022].
