Roger Brown’s Keynote Condensed

Yesterday evening Roger Brown, President of the Berklee College of Music, gave a very timely and well thought out Keynote address to kick off the IBMA World of Bluegrass for 2008.

We caught up with Roger afterwards and he and John discussed the subject of his speech, with Roger serving up a condensed version of the speech for our interview.

The file is 12 minutes in length, but well worth the time it’ll take you to watch it.

Read our July 2008 interview with Roger, which he references in the video.

    I doubt Roger really meant to imply that Miles Davis got his start thanks to John Coltrane, but the truth of the matter is that it was Miles who hired Trane away from freelancing in Philadelphia in order to start the great quintet of the 1950’s.
