THE DIZZY BAND: WAS THERE A SINGLE MOMENT THAT MADE YOU WANT TO BE A MUSICIAN?
The Blue Note Bloggers posed a question to members of the big band: "Was there a single moment when you knew you wanted to be a jazz musician?" After watching Roy Hargrove conduct the band at sound-check, you'll hear answers from James Moody, Jimmy Heath, Gary Smulyan, Greg Gisbert, Roberta Gambarini, Claudio Roditi, Willie Jones III, Mike Dease, and bassist and executive director John Lee. They're here this week from June 15 - 20 at 8pm & 10:30pm nightly.
