This week on the show I’m featuring the once Georgian turned New Yorker, now Michiganian jazz trombonist Michael Dease. He recently came back from a stint in NYC, where he used to play as part of Juilliard’s first jazz program, though he now lays his hat down in East Lansing where he teaches. His most recent album, the April 2013 release Coming Home, is an sonic explorations of his roots in Augusta, GA. We spoke about his expensive taste in instruments, his move to New York in the wake of 9/11, and the different influences that make up “home.” Get jazzed!
