Art Farmer Interviewed

Here are a couple of brief but fascinating fragments from interviews of Art Farmer. In the first (1988), Art talks about two iconic but older musicians, Buck Clayton and Lester Young. The second is a clip from an Art Farmer interview done August 13, 1993 as part of the New York Public Library Louis Armstrong Jazz Oral History Project. The complete interview is stored at the Schomburg Center. In this brief video, Farmer discusses his approach to ballad playing.
