Dr. Michael White is a widely regarded clarinetist, bandleader, composer, jazz historian and educator who plays classic New Orleans jazz in the George Lewis style. Dr. White has served as guest director for several Jazz at Lincoln Center concerts, and is a senior professor of Spanish language and music at Xavier University.
When asked to share his musical philosophy, Dr. White states, “...one of the lessons that I learned, and I try to teach this to my students, is that one of the values of listening to jazz, especially New Orleans jazz, is not just for the danceable nature and the great music that it is, but also because of the lessons that it teaches and that can be used today. And one of those great lessons is that you have to improvise. You have to be able to take what comes and make something good happen with it.”
