Adam Rogers Interview: “Hearing Jimi Hendrix was an epiphany”

Adam Rogers Interview: Make SURE you listen to an AMAZING lesson on defining yourself and how to get the universe behind your efforts (at the 2:18:20 mark on video, a little later on audio) INCREDIBLE stories here, playing NYC jazz clubs at 17 with the Gil Evans Orchestra, Bill Evans & others… Playing with John Pattitucci, Alana Davis, Michael Brecker (and his influence on Adam’s life), Paul Simon, Pat Metheny (and the unusual group he and Pat belong to), busking on the streets of NYC for 5 years (and the MANY lessons he learned from this), touring the world with a klezmer clarinetist… his cool guitars, being obsessive, Lake George, doing ONE thing really well, his musical parents, being honest with yourself. Totally amazing conversation, great call from an insanely talented player 

Adam Rogers Interview: Born & raised in NYC, Adam Rogers studied classical music, and jazz with John Scofield. As a session player, he’s played on over 200 LPs and has toured extensively throughout the US & literally all over the world, with artists like Michael & Randy Brecker, Cassandra Wilson, Norah Jones, Paul Simon, Joe Jackson, Marcus Miller, The Mingus Orchestra, John Pattitucci, Lizz Wright, Christian McBride, Brian Blade, Alana Davis, Dennis Chambers, Larry Coryell, and others. He co-led Lost Tribe, and has released 6 solo LPs – his latest, “Dice,” is a great trip through blues, funk, jazz & rock.
