Ambrose Akinmusire is this year’s MJF Artist-in-Residence. His Friday night Dizzy’s Den set with his quintet is a strong contender for the best performance of this year’s festival. Minutes before going on stage with the Next Generation Jazz Orchestra, Ambrose (a Next Gen alum) spoke with KUSP’s Jeff Dayton-Johnson about the importance of MJF’s jazz-education work, as well as his upcoming projects.
