The much-lauded jazz guitarist Gene Bertoncini, who has made significant contributions to music in a career spanning over 60 years, joined Cara Lieurance in the studio to preview his concert with longtime friend Tom Knific, the chair of the Western Michigan University Jazz Studies Department. Beginning at 7:30 pm, the performance will also feature singer Sunny Wilkinson, and will be held in the Dalton Center Recital Hall at WMU.

The conversation touches upon a few of his favorite collaborators over the years, and Gene reveals his near-miss career path: he studied architecture at Notre Dame University.
