Seven ?s with Rachel Eckroth

Rachel performed for NBJP April 19 at Makeda

 

NBJP: Other than the instrument you play, what’s your favorite instrument to listen to?

RE: I am in love with the cello. It’s such a warm instrument, but I wish I could play the bass.

NBJP: What’s the worst job you ever had?

RE: When I first moved to the New York area, I worked at a store in the mall.  I’m not really a customer service type person.

NBJP:   If you could live anywhere in the world, where would that be?

RE:  My dream is to visit Tahiti, so maybe there.

NBJP:  Who’s your favorite non-jazz composer?

RE:  Astor Piazzolla is one of my favorites – innovator of modern tango.

NBJP: What’s the last book you read?

RE: A cookbook.

NBJP: What’s your favorite (“G” rated!) guilty pleasure?

RE:  I love to travel.  I am a huge fan of seeing new places, cultures, and would love to do that all the time.

NBJP:  What musician do you believe has influenced you the most? (so far)

RE:: I connect to all of the different incarnations of Miles Davis’ musical contributions the most, so I’d have to say Miles.

PLUS ONE: When did you know? (That you wanted to be a jazz musician)

RE:When I was 15.
