It’s Spring Pledge Drive! And it was busy with guests, so I didn’t get to play as many songs as usual. Trumpeter John Raymond called in to talk about his new CD, Strength and Song, and Chris Bates dropped by to talk about his Open Rehearsal Project with his new Quintet. And we heard from Akiko Tsuruga, Connie Evingson, Mary Louise Knutson, David Murray, and the Mingus Big Band.
