Great interview with Paul Wertico and chock full of info. Paul has a revolutionary new book out called Turn the Beat Around and he discusses the concept, along with his 6th CD with Wertico, Cain and Gray. Paul is one of those guys who has so much knowledge to impart...which I guess is why he's an Associate Professor of Jazz Studies at Roosevelt University in Chicago...take a listen.
