LISTEN: Jim and Thomas interview Nicholas Krolak, a young veteran of the Philadelphia jazz scene. Nicholas has made a name for himself playing upright bass in and around the city with groups as conventional as the Glenn Miller Orchestra, and in innovative contemporary projects like his own album South Cloud. He explains how his latest album, Chicory Root, came together, and how it represents his process as a performer, composer and bandleader. The conversation also touches on Nicholas's passions and hobbies, his experience living in Germantown, and the differences he has observed between cultures of jazz in the city and the country.
