Something new

After recording this episode, Cory and I decided to start a new podcast together, Jazz Office Hours. It's coming soon. It'll be a show for all kinds of participants in jazz to have their questions heard, learn from our mistakes already made, and solve challenges they face. Tap that link to learn more.
