Thought provoking

I just finished listening to the Matt Turner interview, and it was great. The conversation started by discussing the new Jazz & Contemporary program at Lawrence U., And while never straying far from examination of pedagogical improvisation approaches, it was a very diverse look at how so the demands of performers of all fields must deal with the many revolutions--business, technological, and cultural-- the music world has undergone in just a few decades.

Fascinating and Inspiring!

I am not a musician myself, but I have loved listening to Bailey and her guests deep dive into this world, in a way that still feels applicable in my own life! These conversations have sparked my curiosity about the music world and I'm inspired to bring more music into my life. Looking forward to more episodes!
