Back in January, Portland trumpeter and educator Farnell Newton walked us through some of the hottest jazz, funk, and soul in Oregon. It’s one of our favorite episodes, so this week we’re revisiting that conversation in its entirety.

Farnell Newton talks about his experience touring with Bootsy Collins and Jill Scott, Liv Warfield’s gorgeous work, and the Tuareg take on Purple Rain … yes, you read that right. You don’t want to miss a minute, so mark your calendar — or set your phone reminder  — for this Saturday at noon.
