Now streaming: the April episode of ‘The Munro Review’

It’s a first for my CMAC monthly arts talk show: I conduct a transcontinental interview. ¬†Fresno State professor Benjamin Boone is teaching in Ghana this school year, and I caught up with him (thanks to the magic of iPhones and WeTransfer) to ask about the release of his new album, “The Poetry of Jazz.” The CD is the culmination of a years-long collaboration between Philip Levine, the famed Fresno poet (and U.S. poet laureate) and Boone.

Also on this month’s episode: David Fox of Keyboard Concerts and Jack Fortner of Orpheus chamber ensemble talk about the upcoming April 8 Fresno State performance by the Alexander String Quartet. Plus, I offer recaps of March coverage and previews of coming April attractions, including an appearance by Fresno Philharmonic players at Bitwise South Stadium.
