...and we're back...

Summer break is over, at least here at the Afterbeat podcast. We're getting back to bidness with a subject that's been a recurring theme on almost every show: jazz education. I've lined up an expert: Dr. Thom Mason, the founder and first chairman of the Jazz Studies Dept. at the USC Thorton School of Music.  A fine sax player, composer and arranger, Thom's also an old friend; we've played pretty much every kind of gig there is to play.  He's one of the smartest cats I know, and he really thinks about jazz ed - where is it going; how does it stay relevant; should we be teaching now what we taught then?  All good questions; it should be a lively discussion.  

Thom will be recording Friday (7/13); I'll post the show on Sunday (7/15).  Some great guests coming up, so watch the twitter feed (@afterbeatpod) or check this page for updates as well.
