Sept 25 Radio Talk: What’s the future of jazz, today and tomorrow?

Jazz musicians today face challenges that the likes of Charlie Parker and Miles Davis never had to imagine. How do jazz artists practice their craft – let alone make a living – during the twin crises of the pandemic and this social-political moment?

How does an art form thrive in an age of streaming, declining physical record sales, disappearing venues, and a changing pop culture?
