Detroit jazz trumpeter Marcus Belgrave died just over a week ago. Early in his career he backed many Motown musicians, and was in Ray Charles’ band. He later worked with many jazz greats including Max Roach and Charles Mingus. He also was a mentor to many of today’s best jazz musicians, including bassist Rodney Whitaker, who is the director of Jazz Studies at Michigan State University.

Current State has enjoyed tracking the success of Joshua Davis on NBC’s “The Voice”, from his early auditions all the way to the finals last week. Scott Pohl spoke with the long-time leader of the Lansing band Steppin’ In It early in the season, and they had another conversation yesterday.
