The Jazz Maker: David Miller

There’s plenty of live jazz in Bloomington, Indiana on any given night. And if you’re in the audience, there’s a good chance one local musician is either playing or promoting that music you’re hearing.  That figure is trumpeter and veteran of the local Bloomington jazz scene, David Miller.  Miller spoke with WFIU’s David Brent Johnson about his experiences since coming to Bloomington in the mid-1960s.
