Vocalist, pianist, and Grammy-winning composer John Proulx has a voice that is reminiscent of  another great all-around jazzman, the late Chet Baker. Proulx’s original songs have been recorded by artists including Nancy Wilson and Mary Stallings, and he’s also performed with legends Natalie Cole, Anita O’Day, and Marian McPartland. Proulx joins host Feinstein to discuss the continuing evolution of jazz in a changing world.

Thanks for keeping this WONDERFUL music alive. The songs from the Great American Songbook were the best songs ever written. It's fantastic to still have a writer like Johnny Mandel around. Would love to hear any new material from Mr. Mandel. He may be our last hope for some great new tunes. Thanks Jonathan!
