Nice work!

Ive watched one. Good performances, nice interviews. Segments of an episode would be good for a jazz or music appreciation class (although episode are too long to show as a whole). My only complaint is the very obvious advertising and recruitment efforts for SIUE. Some of the first 5 minutes where primarily talking about how wonderful the staff and campus of SIUE are.... Although I know your jazz department has Grammy Award quality professors. Good job guys.
