We'll catch up with this 'old friend' and and also hear from Larry Applebaum, Senior Music Reference Librarian and jazz specialist in the Music Division at the Library of Congress. Larry visited Russian this year to help the country establish a Jazz Archive. All things "Russian Jazz" Wednesday on Jazz New England at 2 pm.
