Randy Weston – Podcast 261

An intimate conversation with Randy Weston at his home in Brooklyn in 2010.  The master jazz musician tells tales of his times with Charlie Parker, Max Roach, Fela Kuti and countless legends.  Among many accomplishments, Mr. Weston is responsible for bringing gnawa music to a much larger audience, so we thought we’d share this interview before we host Innov Gnawa at a concert at the Mercy Home in Brooklyn this Wednesday.  Tickets for that concert 2/28/18 are available here on the airbnb platform
