LAYMAN ON SOUNDCHECK, 9/7/10: A Miles Davis Debate with Ashley Kahn
My "opponent" this time out (previously I have faced off against jazz folk no less esteemed than Branford Marsalis and Howard Mandel) is author and producer Ashley Kahn. Ashley is the author is a terrific book about the making of Kind of Blue—highly recommended. That said, I plan to win the smackdown with a combination of hyperbole and playful metaphor.
The host of Soundcheck is John Schaefer, and I want to thank him and the Soundcheck producers for so kindly inviting me back to the show so often. WNYC is a great public radio station in New York City at 93.9fm and 820am. The show will broadcast live at 2pm Eastern and will later be available online.
