What a treat indeed (as all Greene Space events are). The oral history lesson was nothing short of amazing; the musical selections performed were, well, Marsalis! Music meant to be heard Live. With heartfelt thanks to WQXR, The Greene Space and Jazz at Lincoln Center, bravo, and please keep it coming!
