Each Monday evening in October on the KCBX program Freedom Jazz Dance, listen in four parts to a new and groundbreaking musical work by Wynton Marsalis. The SLO Chapter of the NAACP presents "The Ever Fonky Lowdown," a funky, jazzy, satirical look at democratic freedom, abuse of power, racism and cultural corruption. Hear the work in four parts from 8:00-8:30 each Monday night, starting October 5. Listen at or on the air on KCBX FM.
