Orange and blue are two complimentary colors that go especially well together. They are also the colors that have inspired the music featured in this episode of Mondo Jazz, to celebrate Radio Free Brooklyn's move into its gorgeous orange and blue studio.

This episode of Mondo Jazz also features an exclusive interview with the leaders of Microscopic Septet, The Jazz Passengers, and the Kamikaze Ground Crew, Phillip Johnston, Gina Leishman, Doug Wieselman and Roy Nathanson who speak about music, friendship, and what it means to have grown up, musically, in the New York Downtown Scene of the '80s.
