John Perrine, saxophonist

WCLV is jazzing things up this week on Cleveland Ovations with a performance by the Cleveland State University Faculty Jazz Combo at Drinko Hall. They present songs by Thelonius Monk, John Coltrane, Charlie Parker, and lots more.

Angela Mitchell speaks with saxophone player John Perrine about loosening up classical audiences, teaching jazz to the next generation, and the difference between be-bop and hard bop.
