A mix of some great music spanning many styles of jazz. Highlights include Pat Metheny, Wynton Marsalis, and Thomas Chapin. Thomas Chapin was a great jazz artist born in Manchester Connecticut. We used to listen to him play at local clubs in the early 80's. He always played with passion and fire. His career was cut short at the prime of his life from leukemia at age 40. At the time Chapin was at the top of his creative genius. This podcast contains two tracks and a video below that show Chapin's artistry and incredible chops.
