Ted Gioia was in high school when he first visited a jazz club and he realized instantly, "This is it! This is what I've been looking for." The experience changed his life and since then he's become a noted jazz critic and historian. Gioia's new book is "How to Listen to Jazz." He tells Anne Strainchamps that new collaborations with rappers and rockers are revitalizing today's jazz.
