Those of you who missed the recent Salon with jazz musician Jason Moran (1993 Winner in Jazz) and iconic street skater Mark Gonzales—or want to reminisce about that time you saw these two legends meet for the first time—can now check out the full video. Moderated by Garth Ross, Vice President for Community Engagement at the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts, the intimate conversation touched on early influences, the role of improvisation and how Moran’s thinking behind bringing jazz and skate to a wider audience.
