From Louis Armstrong to Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis to Winton Marsalis – even “new kids” like Roxy Coss and Theo Crocker and a long list of local legends like Jimmy McGary, Steve Schmidt, Fred Hirsch – this lively exchange will leave you believing “Life is a lot like jazz…best when you improvise.”
