Heather Leigh: The pedal steel guitar is an extension of me

A little weak on details – musical and otherwise – this Spanish-English interview with steel guitarist Heather Leigh by Loop’s Guillermo Escudero tries to explain the appeal and mechanics of the American-in-Scotland’s instrument and situate her playing within the Free Jazz scene. However Leigh, whose ongoing work, live and on record, in a solo contest and with drummer Chris Corsano and tenor saxophonist Peter Brötzmann has brought her unique sound to those most familiar with improvisation seems to spend much of the interview musing about her influences, speaking about rock bands and pushing her most recent disc.
