Crucial Listening #65: Ashley Paul

Lockdown dance parties, loosening the Nutcracker’s limbs, finding space to breathe. The songwriter and saxophonist discusses three important albums.

Ashley’s picks:

Jonathan Richman – I, Jonathan
Duke Ellington – The Nutcracker Suite
Joshua Abrams & Natural Information Society – Mandatory Reality

Ashley’s excellent new record, Ray, is out now on Slip. Check it out on Bandcamp. A few tracks are previewing on The Wire too.
