Episode 31 - Some Jazz You Should Hear

The Catholic Culture Podcast

You may or may not know that I have a background in jazz piano (I wrote and performed the intro and outro music for this show, for example). In this album I introduce you to about ten of my very favorite jazz albums. This is an experimental solo episode, but don’t worry, we’ll be back to interviews next week.
