“Justice, spirituality and race have always been part of American life,” says Greg Jarrell. Much of the jazz tradition grew up from the church, and also developed its voice in the reconstruction era. There is a natural connection.” Recently this conversation has resurged, Greg sees opportunity stemming from the pandemic, and discusses the way in which music can facilitate dialogue.
