Jazz in the City

Art Blakey kicks things off before reviewing some great new music from musicians we saw this week in my travels to New York and Boston. Art Blakey surely was one of the great inspirations to today's modern jazz artists. Here are some of those creative musicians that you can catch live on the East Coast (US) and touring around the world.
