Wynton Marsalis, trumpeter, composer and artistic director of Jazz at Lincoln Center and Susan Olson, Woodlawn Cemetery’s historian, celebrate the jazz greats – including Miles Davis and Duke Ellington – who are buried near each other in their own distinguished corner of the cemetery. Plus: a call for local architects, not high-profile “starchitects;” analysis of Eric Cantor's stunning defeat; Diane Ravitch on the ruling on teacher tenure in California; Pope Francis calls for peace and holds a prayer meeting with the heads of Israel and Palestine; and immigrant soccer fans plug the national teams from their home countries.
