Jimmy Lavalle (The Album Leaf) on Jekyll and Hyde

Jimmy Lavalle on Jekyll and Hyde

I interviewed Jimmy Lavalle in July 2011, and slightly re-edited the show after it aired. I’m glad to say it’s now on the archive. This one took us a long time to schedule, and Jimmy’s a really deep, creative guy. It was a pleasure to go in depth into the life behind the beautiful soundscapes he creates.
