Heavy Metal Be-Bop #3: Trevor Dunn
The third installment of my Heavy Metal Be-Bop series, an interview with Trevor Dunn, is finally live at Invisible Oranges. This Q&A was a pleasure. Dunn is a really friendly guy, and he's also admirably casual about his mindblowingly eclectic résumé: Playing metal one night and jazz the next is not a gimmick for him; it's simply the professional path he follows as an open-minded freelance musician.
If you're in New York, go see this man live—he plays all the time. (Check his website for details.) Dunn was a revelation at a recent gig I caught by the Celestial Septet (Nels Cline Singers + ROVA Sax Quartet).
