September 23 is the birth dates of two giants of American music. John Coltrane and Ray Charles were both born on this day. We celebrate their music and innovation on this podcast. Perhaps not as well known, but a great player from Boston, George Garzone shares this birth date as well. Garzone shared a stage with Joe Lovano in Boston this week, and I was honored to be present at that event. We hear from both of them to close out this podcast.
