For decades, L.A.’s jazz scene has existed in the shadows of New York and Chicago. Those days are over. KCET’s SOCAL CONNECTED Season 9 features “Jazz City,” a segment that examines the people, places and sounds that are putting L.A. jazz back on the map. In this clip from the full episode, our students in the Herbie Hancock Institute of Jazz at UCLA are in the spotlight along with Herbie Hancock, Daniel Seeff, and former Bruin Kamasi Washington and the West Coast Get Down.
