9/11: A Jazz Remembrance


This year's observance of the anniversary of the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington were low-key in Champaign-Urbana. University of Illinois law students planted small flags on the lawn outside their building. Meanwhile, before a small audience at Smith Hall, faculty members of the School of Music improvised on the hymn "Amazing Grace" for exactly 17 minutes -- the time between the two attacks on the World Trade Center. AM 580's Tom Rogers talked with Karl Kramer, director of the UI School of Music, and musicians Chip Stevens, Ron Bridgewater and Chip McNeill.
