I Love Jazz

The Jazz Studies Program at UMSL-Including Performances from Students, February 2015

On this I Love Jazz with Don Wolff, we visit the Jazz studies program at UM- St. Louis, where we'll hear performances from their Jazz Ensemble and Jazz Combos. We'll also talk with bassist, bandleader and educator Jim Widner, Director of Jazz Studies at UMSL to learn more about jazz education in the St. Louis area and nationwide. The Phil Dunlap Quintet records their first CD and we travel to the recording session for an inside look into the process. And for our Jazz Gem, we have a performance from the late, great alto saxophonist and clarinetist, LeRoy Harris.
