Mary-Sue Tobin: Coffeeshop Conversations #109 The busiest saxophonist in town

By TOM D'ANTONI // She was here for the first Coffeeshop Conversation. Now she's back and busier than ever. And even more fun!

Welcome back to World Cup Coffee and Tea at NW 18th and Glisan for another OMN Coffeeshop Conversation.

Let’s go back to the first week of December in 2014, the premiere of Coffeeshop Conversations. This is number 109 of them, but number one was with saxophonist Mary-Sue Tobin, she of the Quadraphonnes and many many other bands and every kind of saxophone imaginable.

When we passed number 100 a couple of months ago, I wanted to come back to her. Boy was that the right decision. She’s smart, funny and bursting with ideas. And we share an obsession about a certain pop tune. You’ll find out.

She’s got so many things going on these days, including a Quadraphonnes gig at the Montavilla Jazz Festival on Sunday, August 20 playing the music of Andrew Durkin coming up.

Let’s just dive in.

p.s. She sent me a track from Paxselin called "Death and the Child" from A Guide To Desolation Wilderness to end things.

And here's Coffeeshop Conversation #1
