Improvisations To Go: It's A Gift


In episode one, Todd Steed takes a train to New Orleans to explore the very history of jazz. Along the way, he talks to local legends, eats too much fabulous food, and finds himself opening up just enough to dance on the street.

Each of the individual interviews will posted online at the completion of the series. 

Original music performed by Daniel Kimbro, Hunter Deacon, John Harvey,  David Dayoub and Todd Steed. Recorded at Top Hat Recording in Knoxville.

This six-episode project was made possible by generous support from Aubrey's and Dr. Craig and Debbie Jarvis, not to mention their fabulous hunting poodle Curly Sue.  

Note: Episode one was produced before the current pandemic crisis.  We dedicate this episode to the people of New Orleans and stranded travelers everywhere.
