All About Jazz has an interview with the legendary John Snyder, the founder of Artists House Records and one of the most prolific jazz record producers, who’s worked with everyone from Dave Brubeck, to Aretha Franklin, to Sun Ra and Ornette.

It’s great to see him thinking soundly about music and file sharing and pricing – it’s the first time I’ve seen someone else talk about how low the prices should actually be for getting songs over the net: “If they had coop[t]ed Napster in the first place and charged ten cents a song, they would be billions of dollars ahead of the game. But instead, they shut it down. So record companies are not rational and they are not too advanced in technology. ”

The whole interview is well worth reading.
