Our blogging friend Chris Becker, a composer in New York City, calls our attention to his interview with the African American saxophonist Matana Roberts, a native of Chicago. She is also a composer whose website says she is engaged in “soundscape exploration”. Matana is a member of the “Association For The Advancement Of Creative Musicians – Chicago”, whose motto is “Great Black Music”. The group provides free music training for inner city youth in Chicago. Chris Becker writes:

Hope all is well with you. Take care.
