The Jazz Session #629: Aline Homzy

October 11, 2023

Violinist Aline Homzy’s new album with her band Etoile Magique is called Eclipse (Elastic Recordings, 2023). In this interview, Aline talks about imagining a world for the album to inhabit; how that world took shape in the arranging and titling process; writing for these particular musicians; a surprise theremin; how her dad influenced her music; what it’s like to play an uncommon jazz instrument; the importance of open-mindedness as a musician; and more.
