Pianist Lenore Raphael has watched musical styles come and go over the course of her career and, like all good jazz artists, has drawn from the best material available to her.

Lenore and Guitarist Doug MacDonald are coming to our Atherton Studio tomorrow evening, and we talked with Lenore about her musical journey.
