The Essence of Cool S1 w/ Tony Stuart

Written by on 06/04/2023

Sundays 2pm-4pm and Fridays 10am-12pm EST

Tony Stuart

On the final episode of season one, we chat with musician, podcaster, music

teacher, Tony Stuart. Tony is a multi-instrumentalist currently performing with the

jazz duo The Somerset Combo (with Ric Denis). He is the producer and co-host of

a fascinating music podcast called the Way Back Music Machine Podcast. Along

with music writer/radio host Aaron Badgley, they give context to some of the

greatest moments in music history and, every once in a while, pick up a musical

hitchhiker, like me. Tony also teaches high school music and conducts for stage

band and orchestra.

On Episode 14, he makes his case for why jazz legend Miles Davis, pop stars Hall

and Oates, and The Beatles are the essence of cool.
