Learning About the Legends – Pittsburgh has been home to so many of the musicians, arrangers, composers, and educators that created the music we know today as jazz. Weekly we give you a glimpse into the lives of MCG Jazz Pittsburgh Jazz Legends explaining why we pay tribute to these great Pittsburghers. At the end of each month a full transcription of each legend’s oral history will be released full of funny moments and life lessons.
