In Episode 4 of Milwaukee Record’s weekly podcast, On The Record, Matt sits down with the city’s most tireless drummer/percussionist/artist Jon Mueller, as well as Alverno Presents Director David Ravel to discuss Mueller’s “Death Blues: Ensemble” show this Saturday night at Alverno College’s Pitman Theater. Mueller talks about his project’s genesis in post-Katrina New Orleans, his collaboration with San Francisco-based composer William Ryan Fritch, and what people can expect from Saturday’s one-night-only show. Ravel, meanwhile, corrects Mueller on a few details, and reveals the big secret to enjoying daunting or intimidating art: Just show up. (For more on Saturday’s show, and Death Blues in general, check out our feature story from earlier in the week.)
