Editor’s Note: What happens when you put together a jazz historian, a map maker, a sound engineer, and a writer/photographer? You just get a whole lot of jazz. Ba da bum!
John McCusker (Pulitzer Prize winning journalist/photographer and founder of The Cradle of Jazz Tours), Steven Melendez (journalist with publications in Fast Company, Newsweek, Al Jazeera America and New York Public Radio’s WNYC), Sarah Holtz (audio producer), and Kelley Crawford (journalist and writer) all put their efforts together to research, compile, and create a jazz tour full of photos, audio clips, text, and well…some good old fashion walking.
