Russ Davis talks to with the originator of the Jazz Appreciation Month celebration, John Edward Hasse,-Author, Lecturer and Curator of American Music at Smithsonian Institution. The theme of week four is “Jazz In Transition: Miles Moves On!” John will expound on the many phases of the chameleon of jazz, Miles Davis, from his early be-bop days to the phases that followed and how his fellow artists like Herbie Hancock and Stan Getz accepted the changes as well.  Russ will contribute his thoughts on how jazz became an electric art form with the help of Miles, Herbie and others.
