This podcast highlights several jazz artists that can, in my opinion, be considered modern jazz masters. Metheny has been named and NEA Jazz Master for his groundbreaking guitar work. Saxophonists Potter and Preminger each have distinctive voices and are always exploring new musical territories. Other guitar masters represented here are Rosenwinkel and Bernstein.
