Jorge Martín
Jorge Martín was born in Cuba, but he's called America home since he was six. He studied at Yale and earned a master's and doctorate degrees from Columbia University and now makes his home full-time in Vermont. I'll talk with him this morning about his music, and we'll hear his jazzy "Hollywood Variations" from 2003.
