My musical tour of Sweden (May, 2016) with jazz guitarist Steve Kovalcheck was a success both artistically and educationally. The tour was promoted by Radio Nostalgi who featured a 45-minute interview with myself and Royne Nilsson (the station’s jazz expert). Topics covered ranged from differences between the systems of higher education in Sweden and the United States, the School of Music at UM, the current direction of jazz music, my influences and background. Radio Nostalgi also featured my recorded music. The response was positive from listeners and the station plugged our first concert on the hour, every hour for a full week.
