Part five of our six-part series on Butch Morris and Conduction.  We start off this week with an interview recorded for Vermont Public Radio [VPR] in November of 2007 so that listeners can learn more about Morris and the theories behind his concept of Conduction in the composer's own voice.  The interviewer is George Thomas, and also sitting in is Don Glasgo, leader of Dartmouth University's student jazz ensemble "Barbary Coast".  The interview is a bit over 30 minutes in duration. Anyone who missed the interview or would like to hear it again can find it archived at VPR's website: http://www.vpr.net/episode/42045/

Underlying my opening remarks and the VPR interview is an extended excerpt from Morris' Conduction #15
