Wynton Talks About Congo Square on Tavis Smiley

PBS talk show host Tavis Smiley's online publicist has dropped me a line that Smiley recorded an interview with the Wynton Marsalis, who is promoting the CD for Congo Square, which we heard during the Rochester International Jazz Festival. In addition to talking about Congo Square, Marsalis talks about his teaching in the Jazz at Lincoln Center program. went further and talked about the influence he has on kids that he teaches and what he is trying to accomplish through the Jazz at Lincoln Center Program. You can see the full interview and what Wynton Marsalis had to say on the ‘Tavis Smiley’ tonight, which airs in Rochester on WXXI at 12:30 am. If you can’t watch tonight it audio will be available at Tavis Smiley's site on KCET in Los Angeles.
