On Thursday, January 2nd, clarinet and sax genius Victor Goines stopped by WWOZ to share his newest CD "Morning Swing" and his insightful thoughts about jazz and life. On his own "Rosemary Joseph Records" label, "Morning Swing" is Victor's salute to Benny Goodman --- hence he plays the Bb clarinet exclusively.
This Saturday Victor will join former Jazz at Lincoln Center colleague and percussionist par excellence Herlin Riley at Snug Harbor (8 and 10 p.m.).
Victor is famous for his two decade long collaboration with Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and his leading role as a jazz educator not only at Xavier, Loyola and UNO, but also heading the Jazz Studies Department at Juilliard and currently at Northwestern University
One of his proudest acheivements, however, is that he was a former Deejay at WWOZ.
