Living Legends Panel Discussion

On Friday Oct. 10, 2014 I had the pleasure of moderating a panel discussion celebrating the seven Living Legends of Jazz: Roy Haynes, Jimmy Heath, Rufus Reid, Larry Ridley, Reggie Workman, Kenny Barron and  the 2014 honoree pianist, composer Joanne Brackeen. The discussion took place at Levine Music in Washington D.C. and was co-sponsored by the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation.
