Jazz blogger as TV commentator ... for now I'm sticking to the blog (and my day job)

Following an interview with XRIJF producers John Nugent and Marc Iacona, there is short segment on the climate for jazz around Rochester with yours truly and bassist (and ESM prof) Jeff Campbell on this vidoe from WXXI-TV's Need to Knowprogram, hosted by Hélène Biandudi Hofer.    

While I think I have a face for radio and as an editor and writer I am more comfortable with the written word, Jeff more than made up for it. It was an adventure and I thank WXXI and Hélène for giving me the opportunity. I'll have to work on my commentator chops in the remote chance that I'll be invited back....
