My debut radio show on WWUH from University of Hartford. A station with a tradition of supporting jazz music over the air and live concerts. This excerpt of my show starts with Noah Preminger and Joshua Redman covering Ornette Coleman. John McLaughlin provides a meditative piece. Then some newcomers on the jazz scene, Miami's Troy Roberts on sax and 12 year old phenom Joey Alexander on piano.

This podcast is dedicated to late great Ornette Coleman who passed away this week. Ornette was a saxophonist, trumpeter, violinist, composer and an innovator of the Free Jazz and Avant Garde movement. The second half of this podcast is from Pat Metheny's Song X Podcast. Pat does a great job of explaining Ornette Coleman's music, and the experience of recording with him.
