We spent our Friday evening watching Gus jam with his new musical family. It was so great! If you have a kid in grades 8-12 who’s been playing for at least a year or two and is interested in Jazz, this is it! Steve Lee has created a transformative program aimed at raising homegrown Jazz musicians right here in Memphis.
