That's Mike Tracy in the School of Music. He cites a number of advantages the event brings to U of L students. It's a hands on musical experience second to none.

Tracy continues

"The primary reason for jazz week is to have these great artists come in to work and interact with our students. In not only a concert setting, but in clinics and rehearsals. So our kids get to sit right along with these people, who played with the likes of Miles Davis, Charlie Parker and John Coletrain."
