About this Episode

I had the privilege of talking about the role of the blues as the foundation for all American commercial music, with Keith “the Captain” Gamble, Jazz Ambassador for the US State Department. We also discuss how power and politics impacted the rights that black artists had over their own music, and how race still controls the money and the narrative.
