Jazz Guitarist Mark Elf, Live at KLCC

Nov 7, 2013

Guitarist Mark Elf has carved a distinguished career in the jazz world, with a career spanning over forty years. During that time, he's had nine consecutive albums reach number one on the national radio jazz charts, and performed or recorded with greats Dizzy Gillespie, Wynton Marsalis, Jimmy Heath and many others. While in town to teach a master class at the University of Oregon and to perform in trio at Christo's in Salem, he stopped by the KLCC studios for a live performance and a conversation with Eric Alan about the state of jazz in 2013, and how he came to play with Dizzy Gillespie.
