The first two Artistic Director's Guide to Jazz - Live! sessions are now online. At each session, Artistic Director Josh Grossman chats with a special guest about a different series of concerts at this year's TD Toronto Jazz Festival. This year's sessions were recorded by Regent Radio. Four sessions were recorded; two are now available online as audio podcasts: in one, Josh chats with Alex Samaras about vocalists; in the other, Josh chats with Larnell Lewis about the influence of R&B.
