JAZZ 88
Jazz Originals: Down By the Riverside with Butch Thompson
I mixed this Jazz Originals program for radio station Jazz 88 in Minneapolis. Here's a description: "In a live performance recorded at the Paul and Sheila Wellstone Center in Saint Paul, jazz pianist and clarinetist Butch Thompson plays and discusses ragtime, early jazz and blues from New Orleans, St. Louis and other Mississippi River ports. Along the way we hear from Scott Joplin, Jelly Roll Morton, Bix Beiderbecke, and others who were there when the music was new."
