Today's show features Saxophonist, Flautist and Clarinet player Rex Gregory, a jazz musician whose philosophical ideas influence his compositions as much as his teachers and collaborators do. This show was recorded at the Blue Nile. On this recording, Rex is joined on stage by Austin Johnson on Piano, Peter Harris on Bass, Simon Lott on Drums, and Ashlynn Parker on Trumpet.
We also stopped by Café Reconcile, located on Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard in the Central City section of New Orleans. Café Reconcile is run by "a community of concerned people committed to addressing the system of generational poverty, violence and neglect in the New Orleans area."
