In this episode, Monica sits down with saxophonist and composer Rahsaan Barber (Nashville, TN) to discuss musical identity, accepting that music is an emotional thing, and how he racked up brave moments in a special behind-the-scenes look at his headline performance at the 2019 Jazz Education Network Conference in January.

Music is one of those funny things where the upside always, always outweighs the downside.
