Based in Philadelphia, the Black Pearl Chamber Orchestra was established as a model for the 21st-century American orchestra with a mission to combine artistic excellence with cultural diversity. The ensemble's Artistic Director, Jeri Lynne Johnson, joins Garrett to discuss the origins of Black Pearl, changing the culture surrounding "traditional" repertoire, and more. In movement two, Scott continues his celebration of International Guitar Month with music performed by Paul Galbraith and Garrett offers Japanese jazz. The guys start with an acknowledgement of 4/20 and wrap up with words on this week's historic event at Carnegie Hall.
