Western Jazz Quartet saxophonist Andrew Rathbun and pianist Jeremy Siskind talk about the challenges and satisfaction of adding a new voice to the mix, with just one rehearsal to prepare. This is not uncommon in the jazz world, and according to Rathbun, John Hébert is one of the finest bassists working today.

The Western Jazz Quartet and John Hébert take the stage tonight at 7:30 pm in the Dalton Center Recital Hall at WMU. A pre-concert talk begins at 7 pm. Full details on the Bullock Performance Institute Series is at the School of Music website
