We interview Melissa Gardiner, Jazz Trombonist performing live at the Oneida Mansion House this December 15th. Melissa talks about what it was like growing up in central New York and being guided toward a path in music that has led to working with Aretha Franklin, the Temptations and many more. She also discusses her experiences teaching in the area, why she is able to express herself so well through jazz, and offers advice to others who are finding their way in the arts. Melissa also gives us a glimpse of what to expect at her upcoming show, and plays a little Christmas music to bring in the holiday spirit.
