Don't Call it Jazz, Chris Herring
Don't Call it Jazz is proud to present a listening hang with the great basketball writer, podcaster, and author Chris Herring from Sports Illustrated. Host Jon Armstrong and Chris check out some of Chris's favorite jazz songs, how he got into jazz, and the conversations expand into discussions on culture, sports, and life.
There have been many comparisons between jazz and basketball throughout the years, so Jon was excited and honored to have Chris on as a guest to discuss those correlations.
Many thanks to Chris Herring for being so gracious with your time and wisdom!
Chris Herring is also the author of a new book, out in January, "Blood in the Garden" which is about the 1990's New York Knicks.
