Podcast interview by DOUGLAS DETRICK
Editor’s note: Staged as a live jazz radio broadcast, Seattle-based actor/writer Frank Boyd’s one-maniac show The Holler Sessions is a portrait of a jazz-head(case) / radio DJ who evangelizes for the music in uproarious, often profane riffs. The show originated at Seattle’s On the Boards and went on to well-received performances in New York and beyond. In this podcast, ArtsWatch contributing writer Douglas Detrick, who’s executive director of Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble, interviews Boyd about this production, which even includes some live music.
