Thanks to the NPR blog a blog supreme I came across this podcast the Jazz Session.
A little bit of background on the blog and its creator Jason Crane.

The Jazz Session focuses on in-depth interviews with jazz musicians, along with occasional interviews with producers, authors and others in the jazz world. The show’s mission is to chronicle the lives and opinions of musicians who make creative improvised music, without regard to artificial genres or labels. Every episode of the show is available here at thejazzsession.com for free. You can also subscribe for free via iTunes or an RSS reader.
