Ikue Mori

Describe your role in, or approach to, recent Dave Douglas projects. Is it more difficult to find space for your style of playing in “jazzy” groups? Does it change the way you play?

Ikue Mori – I sometime get intimidated not by the people I’m playing with but the scene and tradition and rules, so I need a lot of support to overcome my insecurity even though I know I was hired because I could add different layers of sounds to it. via Squids Ear
