The young maestro Matthew Whitaker will be featured on 60 Minutes tomorrow evening – Sun Feb 23 – and will make his Freihofer’s Saratoga Jazz Festival debut on Sunday, June 28.

Good variety, there’s soul, blues, Latin, gospel and of course jazz. The Matt Wilson thing looked a little weird on line with the music being joined by local poets.
