Coming up on Inside the Arts, we talk with Clarence B. Jones, advisor and speechwriter for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He will speak at Dillard University on Tuesday, September 24 at 7 p.m.

Then we hear from two outstanding jazz musicians: alto saxophonist Wess Anderson and rising Cuban star-pianist Roberto Fonseca.

Inside the Arts airs Tuesdays at 1 p.m. and Thursdays at 7:35 a.m.

Wessell "Warmdaddy" Anderson is one of the top alto saxophonists in jazz today.

A member of Wynton Marsalis's great late-1980s/early-90s septet — and longtime featured artist with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra — Anderson recently sat down with WWNO's Fred Kasten for a "Talkin' Jazz" interview at the Old U.S. Mint.
