Get Ready for "The Hang"

His new project – a Jazz YouTube talk show, The Hang, is broadcast live every Saturday at Noon, New York time.  Viewers are invited to Tweet #thehang or post their comments to The Hang’s Facebook page. After the show is broadcast live, it becomes a YouTube video and can be retrieved at your leisure. You can watch live or on-demand here:
