Learning from Jazz Master Richard Davis in Wisconsin
I am having the time of my life in Madison, Wisconsin! The weather is sunny and mild, and the view of the lake in downtown Madison is breathtaking.
Having heard so much about the”cheese heads,” I was really looking forward to traveling to the city for the first time to participate in the annual meeting of the Oral History Association, and I also wanted to get to know some of the folks at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. What I have experienced thus far has been wonderful, and I cannot wait to interview 2014 NEA Jazz Master and UW-Madison faculty member Richard Davis on Saturday. I visited Prof. Davis just before the start of one of his classes on October 8, 2014, and, as you can see here, the award-winning bassist was all smiles.
