Today's "Five Questions" is going to talk a slightly different route and discuss the phototgraphy of jazz musician Les McCann. McCann's recently released book Invitation to Openness:The Jazz & Soul Photography Of Les McCann 1960-1980 collects his photographs of legendary musicians and documented the vibrant cultural life of jazz and soul between 1960 and 1980.
On Friday, November 13th, Berklee College of Music presented "Petty: A Candid Interview with Warren Zanes Led by Bill Janovitz." If you love books, and if you love music, this was a singular evening.
No one other than Warren Zanes, rocker and writer and friend, could author a book about Tom Petty that is as honest and evocative of Petty's music and the remarkable rock and roll history he and his band helped to write.
