Alina is the person who brought jazz to Lincoln Center, helping forever transform the way jazz is presented globally.

Her latest project Music on the Inside brings jazz , music education, and mentorship to incarcerated people and people re-entering society after being imprisoned.

Music on the Inside hosts a streaming concert every Sunday at 6 PM eastern.

You can support this organization directly as well as the musicians who contribute their time – and we strongly recommend you do so.

Tech note: Thanks to all the darn conferencing apps we’ve added to the computer in recent months and the way that some of them (i.e. Zoom) hijack and scramble settings on our computer, the normal headphone setting we had on was, unbeknownst to us, switched off even though it indicated it was on. Thus our end of the conversation was recorded off the computer’s speakers. This is the reason for the poor audio quality of the recording and the constant air conditioner’s hum in the background.

Randy Klein and Jazzheads.com

What do you do if you’re a composer and can’t get your work recorded? (A very common scenario by the way)

You start your own record label of course and that’s exactly what composer/songwriter/educator Randy Klein did.

And the music world is a richer place because of it,

Among other gems, Jazzheads.com is the label for Bobby Sanabria’s “West Side Story – Reimagined.”

Note: Due to some truly epic logistical problems, I had to record from an unfamiliar location and the sound quality on my end of the conversation is not up to par.

Don’t let it daunt you. This is a fascinating “behind the scenes” look at how musicians are making their own opportunities in the 21st century. Very inspiring.

Corrections: 1. Bob French was Gerald French’s uncle, not father. 2. The name of Judy’s new album is Can You Love Once More?
