Howard and I worked together in the early years of our careers and this conversation, our first in a series recorded on stage at the Ascona Jazz Festival in Switzerland, gave us a chance to play together again, and talk about Howard’s experience teaching Sean Penn to play the guitar for Woody Allen’s film Sweet and Lowdown.
