Connections: Musicians Kenny Werner and Steve Gadd


We'll talk to two towering figures in music. NPR says that pianist, composer and author Kenny Werner is known for his 1996 book Effortless Mastery: Liberating the Master Musician Within, which has become a university textbook for improvising musicians and other artists. He'll talk about unleashing creativity in music.

Then we'll welcome the great Steve Gadd, perhaps the finest drummer of all time. He has a seemingly endless list of accomplishments in music, and we'll talk about his remarkable career.
