Five Questions for Legendary Jazz Trombonist Roswell Rudd

At the youthful age of 75, Roswell Rudd was named Trombonist of the Year in the Downbeat Critics' Poll. Now, just shy of his 76th birthday, Roswell is running his first Kickstarter project to create an album of standards, so we thought we'd ask him about what the experience has been like. He happened to include his fax number when he said yes, which made us realize instantly that this Q&A could be done no other way. So here it is, our first faxed creator Q&A!

      I'm in New Orleans, or quite near there & a great standard I'd love to hear you do is When the Saints Go Marchin' In &, of course, anything by Ellington.

      Max: I think we use something called "eXtreme Fax." I have no idea what it is or how it works.
