This installment of Jazz, Period. looks at the symbiotic relationship between musicians of different generations.
Jazz is an aural tradition, with much of the critical information passed between observant players on stage. It is assumed that this information flows from the 'top down', from old to young, but as drummer Chet Doxas states, players "take each others' hands" to bridge the generation gap, and sometimes, the inspiration flows from the 'bottom up'.
