With 50 awesome episodes now in the rearview, Rob Lundberg is focused on making the next 50 episodes of Uncontaminated Sound – The Interviews even better. Today he chats with one of the mainstays of the New York jazz scene for more than 30 years now; pianist, composer, and educator, Peter Malinverni.

My real beef with the state of reality TV shows today (especially Keeping up with the Kardashians) is it does not convey our current reality, but it is definitely trying to shape it into something ugly. It’s saying “Hey, we talk shit to each other in our family every day, but we look great doing it, and we resolve our issues in 30 minutes, so nothing here is really wrong.”
