Teacher And Former Students Form New Jazz Band "Otherworld"


Jazz and classical pianist Jeffrey Chappell joins Tom to discuss his new quartet Otherworld

Chappell, who is the director of Jazz studies at Goucher College, taught or directed all of his band mates at some point in his career. The band included Jake Kohlhas on guitar, Chris Taylor on bass, and Jake Marinari on percussion. 
Unlike other bands, Otherworld, which was born out of a jam session, doesn’t have a "leader."  Instead, members enjoy equal status and input. 
Chappell talks with Tom about the band’s genesis and what inspires their music.


Host, Midday (M-F 12:00-1:00)
