Jonathan Batiste is a graduate of the prestigious New Orleans Center for Creative Arts with a masters degree from Julliard in jazz and classical piano. But don’t let the elite degrees fool you, as a native of New Orleans, Batiste is equally at home making music in the streets or on the concert stage.
His band named "Stay Human", do just that. They've recently released their breakout album entitled "Social Music". It’s music without borders or labels, pure integrity.
Alan Bryson spoke with Batiste in San Francisco in the middle of his tour. Listen for a sampling from Social Music at the end of the interview.
