John Goodman is the author the book "Mingus Speaks." John will be chatting with co-hosts Alan Bramwell (Giants of Jazz Radio) and Jose Reyes (Jazz Con Class Radio). This interview will mostly concentrate on this revealing book and also on Mingus' amazing career. He was a genius but was very temperamental and was sometimes very hard to work with as a musician but John somehow was able to find a confort zone for these one-on-one interviews. Listen in and/or call in with your questions.
MINGUS SPEAKS is a book of extended interviews which allowed the man to explain himself. He was assisted by me, the interviewer, and by a number of close associates who commented on aspects of his life, behavior and music.
We did the interviews in 1972 and 1974, five years before Mingus died. It was a contentious and wonderful period in his life and for his music....Learn More

June 27 - Jazz Trumpeter - Winston Byrd
After nearly 3 years, Winston Byrd returns for, what I am sure will be, another fabulous interview. Winston was initially bitten by the 'jazz bug' as a seventh grader when he heard Maynard Ferguson's playing of 'Give It One.' Soon after, he witnessed Dizzy Gillespie and Jon Faddis trading solos on 'Groovin High' on a 1986 Grammy Awards telecast. And the rest is history.
Winston has performed, recorded, and/or toured with a myriad of big name jazz and pop artists and orchestras including The Chi-Lites, Patti Austin, The Dells, The Grateful Dead, Lionel Hampton, Michael Bolton, Illinois Jacquet Big Band, Roy Hargrove Big Band, Pieces Of A Dream, Claudio Roditi, David Murray, Oliver Lake Big Band, Larry Coryell, Aretha Franklin, Charles Tolliver Big Band, The Stylistics, Natalie Cole, Arturo Sandoval, The Village Vanguard Orchestra, Mary Wilson (of the Supremes), Chucho Valdes, Louie Bellson, T.S. Monk, David 'Fathead' Newman, Chaka Khan, Clark Terry (who suprise-guested with Winston on his All-Star 31st birthday concert!), James Moody, The Dramatics, Shirley Horn, Paquito d' Rivera, Lucky Peterson, Bernard Purdie, Diane Schuur, Don Rickles, Usher, Abbey Lincoln and the Charles Mingus Big Band among others!
I cannot wait to chat about what he's been up to, and what is coming up next for him.
