Take a listen to the interview here.

In 2007, she was awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship for musical composition, and in 2013, in her release Sixteen saunders received a Grammy nomination for the Beat Surround Sound category. "Wild Lines," her latest work for jazz quartet/spoken word inspired by the poetry of Emily Dickinson, was recently released on September 8th.

This month, the podcast network Panoply launched a new subscription app for kids, Pinna, which The New York Times calls "a digital toy box full of ad-free audio for listeners 4-12.”

Conceived, written, and produced by Rhumba Recorders co-owner Michael Rubin with singer-songwriter Richard Julian, Remy's Place is a highly sound-designed, sonic extravaganza centered around a child, Remy, who grows up in a music café that his parents named after him. 

Music features some of the best jazz players in New York City (Norah Jones, Tony Scherr, Tony Mason, Henry Butler, Matthew Munesteri, Noé Socha, Kenny Wollesen, Roy Nathanson) and was recorded live in the Mezzanine studio.
