We kick off this week's episode with fire from Freddie Hubbard. Most of what follows is from young west coast artists beginning with another trumpeter and a San Diego legend in Gilbert Castellanos. Following that are many of SoCal's great young talent. Danny Green, Justin Joyce, Justin Grinnell and Matt Hall display the virtuosity that we have in the San Diego area. The podcast ends with LA's latest guitar phenom, Andrew Renfroe and finally a young drummer from back east currently on tour on the left coast, Jonathan Barber and his group Vision Ahead.
