Alan Hall is a great drummer and composer who has been living in Asheville, NC for the last few years. Alan and I met through Art Lande. Alan and Art have a years long musical and personal association and have played on several recordings together. Art was staying at Alan’s home last year when he came to Asheville to perform. I had the good fortune to spend the day with them.
In this conversation we cover lots of topics, from ideas about teaching and writing, to the state of the music business, to what it’s like trying to become viable as online music biz people. I know you’ll enjoy it.
Above all, Alan is a great player! I recommend Art Lande’s The Silver Fox, Paul McCandless’ Shape Shifter, and Bruce Williamson’s Standard Transmission. You will find more on his website.
I am available for online or in person study.
