He's talking with Keith Hall, host of WMUK's Jazz Currents and professor of jazz drum set at Western Michigan University. He asks Jeremy about his creative inspirations, his experience at the Nottingham International Jazz Piano Competition, and taking on a studio of jazz piano students as the new professor of jazz piano at WMU.

Mr. Siskind plays three of his original pieces, one of which is his 'Six Minute Tango,' written in six minutes after a long day of practicing. His two current CD releases are on BJU records.
