Last Quarter with Josh Jackson

Sundays 8pm-12am on WVTF.

Last Quarter is a show about the radical act of listening to music and musicians.

 

New Orleans jazz pianist and singer Henry Butler perceives the world in a very important way - as an artist, thinker, and mystic. A uniquely eclectic musician, Butler has been blind since birth.

Last Quarter host Josh Jackson talks to Butler about taking the creative cultural influences around him in his own direction.

Gunfights. Car chases. A shady journalist. An artist on the edge. These are not the things you’d expect from a film about a jazz musician.

But with Miles Ahead, director and star Don Cheadle created a portrait of Miles Davis that the legendary trumpeter would have loved to be a part of. 

Josh Jackson hosts an hour of conversation with Don Cheadle, Miles' son Erin Davis, nephew Vince Wilburn, Jr. and film score composer Robert Glasper.
