Carolina Jazz Connections

Larry Reni Thomas is a veteran jazz writer/radio announcer/historian. This program consists of a series of interviews, stories and information about the Carolina jazz connection. It is a refreshing and entertaining way to answer the puzzling and intriguing question: Why are there more than seventy jazz personalities who were born in North Carolina? Some say it’s in the water, others that it comes straight out of the church, and still others who say it just comes from the old-fashioned blues. The Carolina Jazz Connection contends that the answer may be a little of all three, and that the connection tells the history, struggles, triumphs, and evolution of the African American from chattel to citizen.
