Jazz is a paradox in that it resides simultaneously in the past, present, and future. Without its rich history one cannot play jazz in the present, which ironically is also pointing to its future. The language and experiences simmer in a caldron of innovation that never ceases to answer the trio of questions: where have I been, where am I now, and where am I going? In this hour, we explore some of territory covered by each of these perspectives.
