and Grady Tate (from the Blue Note club); saxophonist Tia Fuller (now playing in

Nancy Wilson (and recent Grammy Award winner), trumpeter Jon Faddis and saxophonist
Donald Harrison; local Harlem organ legend Jimmy "Preacher" Robins live at
Showman's, and much more, for instance an education segment featuring jazz education
