Lawrence Talmadge “Larry” Queen, a remarkable journalist, Jazz scholar, teacher, and activist based in North Carolina conducted a variety of remarkable interviews with Jazz luminaries–including Louis Armstrong and Dave Brubeck–which he and his family have generously licensed to Jazz at Lincoln Center to share with the public.
