On a recent trip to New York City, jazz vocalist Molly McFadden took some fellow Michigan musicians along to perform. The enthusiastic response has led to an effort to promote what McFadden feels is a rich Michigan jazz scene.

In between live performances on Current State, McFadden and accompanist Mike Brush explained their launch of the "Michigan Jazz Trail."

McFadden says she wondered if Mississippi can have the Mississippi Blues Trail, Michigan why couldn't Michigan have the Michigan Jazz Trail?
