The show where we uncover the stories, processes, and worldviews behind NYC’s most artful and creative musicians.


Today's Guests

Saxophonist, composer, educator, environmentalist, and multi-instrumentalist Adam Cordero is based in Brooklyn, New York. He has two projects going on, a duo project with Odin Scherer as well as a quintet, and both groups are quite environmentally-conscious. His quintet "Arcadia" holds fall/spring benefit concerts and they helped raise money for the Amazon Rainforest and Australian Wildlife respectively. 

Adam is currently a senior pursuing a BFA degree at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music.


Odin Scherer is a guitarist, composer, and improviser from Katonah, New York. At the age of 22, he is now based in Brooklyn, New York. His diverse research interests include West African and Cuban folkloric music, wildlife and ecosystems, Black American music, and impressionist classical music and visual art. He also has poetry published in Volume 9 of Eleven and a Half, Eugene Lang College’s literary journal. 

Odin plans to graduate from The New School this spring with a BFA in Jazz Guitar Performance.
