Song Travels with Michael Feinstein
Host Michael Feinstein welcomes a new guest each week to explore the genre of American Popular Song, examining how these great songs have evolved through the years, changing with each interpretation and artist.
Jazz pianist Justin Kauflin attended William Paterson University, where he formed a friendship with his mentor, the late Clark Terry. Justin, who lost his vision at age 11, connected with the trumpeter, who was dealing with own vision loss. Their journey together was chronicled in the documentary "Keep On Keepin' On." He went on to work with Quincy Jones, and his 2015 album, "Dedication," topped the jazz charts. This week, Kauflin remembers his mentor with "For Clark."
