If you ask a jazz educator what shape traditional jazz is in, you might get the proverbial glass-half-full response.

But ask Sean Jones, a professor of jazz studies and trumpet at Duquesne University (plus a Mack Avenue recording artist, and trumpeter alongside Wynton Marsalis in the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra), and you get sound reasons as to why jazz is vibrant in the 21st century.
