Podcast 921 takes us inside "New York Jazz Stories", in written and now video form. Based on the Joe's Pub at the Public residency, this series of stories interacts with the lives of the people involved. From 2012 to 2020, Cadence writers and interviewers asked subjects to present stories in their own words. Under David's expert eye, we can enjoy them now.

These are stories about Sonny Rollins, Annie Ross, Sarah Vaughan, Miles Davis, Herbie Nichols, Thelonious Monk, and many others both historic and contemporary. The music features Bernard Purdie, David Haney, Jay Clayton, Adam Lane, Nick Lyons, Kirk Knuffke, and Dave Storrs.
