   Join me on Jazz Notes, Tuesday, June 24, 2014, at 2:00pm, when I interview and play the music of jazz pianist, keyboardist, producer and composer Marc Cary. He holds tight to his roots in the Washington, D.C. go-go music scene, but they represent only one more element of the many musical forms that he explores. His interests run from Indian classical to Malian music to hip-hop. He started his career working with Betty Carter, a legendary vocalist famous for drawing soul and sincerity out of her bands, and went on to work with Roy Hargrove, Dizzy Gillespie, Erykah Badu, Shirley Horn, Stefon Harris, Q-Tip and – most influential of all – Abbey Lincoln.  Jazz Lives!
