With Tri-C JazzFest Cleveland less than two months away, regional attention is starting to return to local jazz music.
Four local jazz musicians with longtime ties to JazzFest performed together and chatted about their experiences in the music world during a recent edition of WCPN/ideastream’s Applause Performances.
Trumpeter Dominick Farinacci, drummer Jerome Jennings, guitarist Dan Wilson and bassist Christian McBride participated in the hourlong livestream, recorded at the Idea Center at Playhouse Square.
