DE USURIS - JAMES EARL JONES II, JEANNIE TANNER AND LITTLE ME
Music, art and theater are healing devices, according to James Earl Jones II. Diagnosed with Tourette’s Syndrome as a child, Jones' early goal was to become a doctor to help others. Life finds a way, as we will hear in this week’s CONVERSATIONS podcast, and Jones instead pursued an opera scholarship and an enormously successful stage career over the last decade. Jeannie Tanner debuts her new album Word & Music at the City Winery this week featuring all of the albums performers.
