Inquiry welcomes back Cary Ginell, award-winning writer, jazz historian and discographer. His new book is the next volume in the Hal Leonard Jazz Biography Series: The Evolution of Mann: Herbie Mann and the Flute in Jazz. Tune in and learn about Herbie Mann’s amazing and varied career and his interests in world music from Afro-Cuban Jazz to Brazilian Jazz and Bossa Nova to Middle Eastern Music and even Japanese music. Herbie Mann may not have been the first jazz flute player but he was the first jazz musician to specialize in the flute and he brought his music around the world.

Tonight Inquiry welcomes Hisham D. Aidi, a lecturer at the School of International and Public Affairs and the Institute of African Affairs at Columbia University. His important new book is titled Rebel Music: Race, Empire, and the New Muslim Youth Culture. “Music is a powerful lens through which to view the identities and movements emerging in Muslim communities.” Writes Hisham D. Aidi in the introduction to this complex and fascinating history. Be sure to tune in.
