Eddie Schuller Interview

My special guest this week is bassist Eddie Schuller. We'll talk about the past- Paul Motian's early 1980s Quintet- the present- Schuller's current music- and some in between stuff. I'm bringing in all the recordings Paul Motian had that Schuller is on including rehearsals and live gigs. It's quite a large pile of music.
