We also profile a host of musicians releasing some quality new music including Bobby Wiens, Chico Pinheiro, David Gilmore and Charles McPherson. We say goodbye to actor and banjo player who dabbled in the jazz arts, George Segal. We wrap up this episode with the big sound of The Vanguard Jazz Orchestra. Enjoy the jazz.
