Lee & Rene spin new albums from vocal jazz innovators Bobby McFerrin and Cecile McLorin Salvant, two singers at very different stages of their career. Lee admits to not liking the McFerrin at first because it didn't conform to his expecations of what gospel music should sound like. Which leads to Rene's riff on how expectations or pre-conceived notions can wreak havoc with an artist's creativity. This episode sponsored by the Newport Jazz Festival.
