JAZZ

By Boston Public Radio

WGBH's own "Dean of Boston Jazz Radio" Eric Jackson stopped by the Boston Public Radio soundbooth to discuss his recent experience at the Newport Jazz Festival, the concerts he's most looking forward to and what he listens to when he isn't listening to Jazz.

"Keep a paper and pencil handy. When you hear something you like, write that down and build a library of music you like," says Jackson about his curation of Jazz music on 89.7 FM and why he doesn't presume that he can give listeners a Top Ten list.

Listen to Eric talk with Boston Public Radio's Edgar B. Herwick III.
