On Episode 39, Dani Rabin, founding member and guitarist of Chicago-based jazz outfit Marbin, leaves me with an astounding amount of philosophical takes—he muses about his thoughts on the lack of consensus in the jazz genre and the influence of the cultural zeitgeist on labels, how editing has opened the door to accuracy - and what that means for people trying to preserve perfection, why his band DOESN’T rehearse, and at long last, an explanation of the story behind their song “Alabama Sock Party!”
**Also note that since this interview was conducted, of course thanks to COVID-19 precautions, Marbin’s tour has unfortunately been cancelled. So you’ll hear us discussing tour dates which are no longer happening. That being said, most of the band members are conducting lessons via Skype and offering their musical talents to you in many ways if you’re quarantined at home, so please go follow the links below.
