Jazz Talk With Leander Young from Improv Exchange

I got a special episode on the podcast for you today. On the show is Leander Young from the Improv Exchange, and we had a fun little conversation, actually, after I recorded a podcast for his podcast, and just started talking jazz, started talking about playing music, learning how to play music, great jazz musicians, a whole slew of other things.

I know you’re going to have a lot of fun listening to this one and you’ll learn some things along the way.
