Jonathan Batiste Audio Interview

Date Featured: 2013-10-26

Listen to interview with Jonathan Batiste

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.
