For our 25th episode, I'm happy to feature Mike McGinnis. Mike is primarily known as a clarinetist nowadays although he also sounds great on the saxophone. We talk about what led him to focus on the clarinet, the tradition of being an anti-traditionalist, and being a silo enthusiast. We also talk about his two most recent releases. The first is called Road*Trip which features Bill Smith’s great piece titled "Concerto for Clarinet and Combo” and a suite of his own. The second is called The Ängsudden Song Cycle which is a collaboration with poet and artist MuKha that features vocalist Kyoko Kitamura and an all wooden ensemble.
