How exactly does a highly respected figure among the New York City jazz scene find himself in Sacramento? Jazz saxophonist and composer Jacam Manricks has called the river city home for two years, but he still travels back to New York City to perform and record. In fact, he's recently finished recording for a brand-new album, "Chamber Jazz."
Manricks will be performing with Joe Gilman this weekend at the Sacramento Music Festival. Today on Insight, he joins us in studio to talk about his career background, the music that inspired him most and how he ended up a West Coast transplant (hint: UC Davis plays a role). We'll also hear music from the new album.
