Audio Postcard: Wichita Jazz Festival

Apr 10, 2018

The Wichita Jazz Festival was founded in 1972. Headlining artists typically take part in clinics and workshops with regional middle and high school jazz bands. KMUW’s Jonathan Huber sat in on a workshop that New York bassist Ben Allison led with the McPherson Middle School Jazz Band, where he explained what makes a tune swing, as we hear in this Audio Postcard.
