Hafez Modirzadeh on KZSU Friday

Hafez Modirzadeh will be interviewed live on KZSU-FM.  It’ll be on Friday, Oct. 5, at about 8:00 a.m. Pacific time.

Modirzadeh’s new album, Post-Chromodal Out!, has been receiving lots of attention. It’s jazz based on Persian scales, a format Modirzadeh and trumpeter Amir ElSaffar have been collaborating on. (Previous mention.) For this album, they’ve added Vijay Iyer playing a microtuned piano, which “gives Post-Chromodal Out! its strongest pull of disorientation,” as Nate Chinen of The New York Times so aptly puts it.

Anyway, the plan is for DJ Fo to interview Modirzadeh on the air this Friday. The occasion is an upcoming show: Weds., Oct. 10 at Kuumbwa Jazz Center in Santa Cruz. Iyer will be on hand — whether playing an electronic keyboard that’s microtuned, or a specially retuned piano, I don’t know.

Hey, maybe they’ll mention that in the interview! You can find out by tuning in: 90.1 FM in the Bay Area, or kzsulive.com anywhere else on the Internet.

In addition to radio duties, Fo keeps a jazz blog at JazzObserver.com.  Very professional, and augmented with some of Fo’s own photography. Check it out for his detailed reports from the recent Monterey Jazz Festival.
