And all that jazz...For most Columbia students and alumni, when you hear the words "jazz at Columbia" it's almost impossible not to think of GSAS alumnus Christopher Washburne. Washburne is an associate professor of music and director of the Louis Armstrong Jazz Performance program at Columbia. His most common instrument of choice is the trombone, and he also plays the tube, the didjeridu, and percussion.
On The Low Down podcast, we play you a mashup of two talks that Washburne gave at Columbia, where he explores the creative process of jazz, paying particular attention to the role that collaboration and improvisation plays. He delves into how this process can inform your everyday decisions in the workplace, from leadership and adaptability to innovation and risk management.
