New Orleans drummer Gerald French joined me onstage at the 2013 Ascona Jazz Festival to discuss his passion for the music of his hometown and his feelings about carrying on the tradition of jazz. I also talked him into a few tunes with his band.
A self-taught Latin percussionist since the age of 12 when his father handed him Cal Tjader’s 1960 “Latino” album featuring Mongo Santamaria and Willie Bobo back in 1966, and an LP fiberglass conga and told him, “Here, learn to play right with these”, he’s been living and breathing Latin Jazz since.
