My Interview with Donald Miller & Steve Taylor about Blue Like Jazz Film

Follow Me on YouTube!

**** A Quick Note: I hope that the noise of the coffee shop doesn’t throw you off. Let me just say that I had a great time chatting with Donald and Steve both on and off camera – what great and down to earth guys. They are on an exhausting tour promoting their movie and I am grateful that they took a short bit of their morning to chat with me about the project.

In theaters April 13.

    Great. Thanks for asking them about harsh treatments of evangelicals.  Don looked bored till you asked that at the 18:15 mark, then he got some life in him.

    Thoughts:
    The background noise: Was this done in a busy diner?  Hospital cafeteria? Back alley?

      It was done in a busy coffee shop fairly early in the day.

      I can tell u from experience that Don (like anyone in the sit and listen posture on a video) was engaged but probably trying to not be distracted by the loud coffee shop etc. when we chatted off record he was very cool as well. Both are great guys!

         I’m sure they are. I’m two days away from meeting them (hopefully) at the Ft Worth showing of Blue Like Jazz.

    I’ll have to watch this when I get home.  But I am looking forward to it as I like the idea of the film and I am a big fan of Steve Taylor as a lyricist and musician.  

    I’ll say this, the snapshot from the video above, I could tell who was who simply because I recognized Steve’s beak. No offense, Steve!

    A tech question, how do you record chats?

    Awesome, Steve Taylor was one of my favorites back in the 80’s, I wanna be a clone, love it.

    Kurt, thanks for picking my question about sucess/rotten tomatoe scores. I’m glad it added to the conversation!
