A tribute performance for jazz clarinet player and alto saxophonist, Don Suhor lead by one is his students, James Markway. In the early 1950s, Don was part of the city's underground modern jazz movement and became one of a handful of white musicians to defy Jim Crow laws that banned interracial bandstands. Markway has been a professional bassist in New Orleans since 1972, played with a host of N.O. artists, and these days mostly enjoys playing Cajun music with Bruce Daigrepont, R&B with the Dixie Cups, trad jazz with the Pfister Sisters and at Fritzel's, and modern jazz and funk with his own band. He's been a music teacher since 1974; and at Tulane since 1991, where he teaches electric and acoustic bass and jazz combo.
