THIS WEEK ON THE JAZZ SESSION
*********************************

TJS #350: Jimmy Heath. The Jazz Session celebrates its fifth anniversary 
with one of the giants of the music, saxophonist and composer Jimmy 
Heath. In this interview, Heath talks about his early days as a writer 
and arranger; his Queens neighborhood and its importance to jazz 
history; why he loves the sound of a big band; and how he keeps himself 
moving forward and growing at this stage in his career. He also shares a 
fax of a 1947 concert poster, received the morning of the interview, 
with some hilarious text. LISTEN: http://bit.ly/yomlky

TJS #351: Ochion Jewell. Composer Darcy James Argue’s latest work is a 
multimedia piece called Brooklyn Babylon. In this interview, he tells 
the amazing story of how he and visual artist Danijel Zezelj created the 
piece; goes behind the scenes of the composition and the technical 
aspects of producing such a large work; and also talks about a 
performance on March 9, 2012 at which his band Secret Society will play 
his works and the works of other composers. LISTEN: http://bit.ly/xqikjf
