Show Notes

Solid conversation on this episode with jazz pianist/saxophonist Connor Derraugh, who just released his debut album, ‘Acceptance’, with vocalist Cordelia Donovan.

We talked about the record — which was inspired by the passing of a close mutual friend — and the discovery of a new musical partnership.

We also got into Connor’s unique journey, which includes a traumatic brain injury that left him temporarily unable to use his right hand (not great for a piano player!) and how that shaped his playing and outlook today.
