Jazz trombonist and composer Roswell Rudd celebrated his 70th birthday on Nov. 17, 2005. Rudd's new CD, Blue Mongol, features his work with The Mongolian Buryat Band, a group of throat singers. Rudd is known for his work with groundbreaking groups and musicians like Herbie Nichols, the New York Art Quartet, Cecil Taylor, Archie Shepp, and Carla Bley. He is equally comfortable with traditional and avant-garde work. This interview originally aired on Feb. 12, 2002.
