"As the director of jazz studies at NYU Steinhardt I oversee a thriving jazz studies program in New York City. I am constantly surrounded by students and internationally acclaimed artist faculty who invariably end up holding court in my office to candidly discuss their musical experiences. Anyone who has visited my jazz program would compare the musician traffic to that of rush hour at Grand Central Station. With the constant flow of musicians moving in and out, my days are filled with conversations that range from the casual to the profound. The NYU Steinhardt Jazz Interview Series on YouTube developed as an outgrowth of my daily interaction with musicians, students and music fans. The series has developed into an open exchange of knowledge for anyone interested in understanding the musician's process and the human side of being a jazz artist. With the start of the series in the Fall of 2014, our YouTube Channel has received nearly 300,000 visitors and our live audiences have been thrilled to interact with legendary jazz artists up close and personal."
