I got news that my buddy jazz trombonist J. Walter Hawkes was featured on the NPR show "Studio 360" a couple of days ago, talking about the near fatal accident that transformed him into a jazz musician.
Here’s the direct link to the audio stream (or just click on the image). There’s also a much longer version of the story from J. Walter’s blog that’s really inspirational.
Check it out. It’s literally a cliffhanger!
