Music and revolution: the amazing life story of Jay Janson, on China Rising Radio Sinoland, 161224




Every once in a while, we come across someone who has a story to tell that is so unbelievable and incredibly exciting, that we can’t help but be inspired and moved. Jay Janson is one of those people. Eighty-six years old and with the wisdom and experience that come with it, he could have taken the easy route, living the comfortable, soft life of conformity and apathy. Instead, Jay is actively involved in opposing Western tyranny and genocide, putting up a website, writing articles and books, all the time fighting the good fight.

Jay’s musical career as a world class trumpetist spans decades, playing with megastars Leonard Bernstein, Andre Previn, Ricardo Muti, Zubin Mehta, Lorin Maazel and Karl Boehm. He was good friends with Spanish celloist Pablo Casals and still is with Wynton Marsalis and Yo-Yo Ma. Jay is a symphony conductor, leading orchestras in Thailand, China, Vietnam, India, Myanmar and Hong Kong. Mr. Janson is a composer, writing music for three documentary films by the United Nations and other international organizations. He is the author and co-author of several books to teach musicians. Fluent in Spanish, he also has an important body of work with Afro-Cuban musicians, such as “Perico” Luis Esteban Ortiz, Ray Vega, Charley Sepulveda, Piro Rodriguez and Tito Lara. Across this incredible professional CV, Jay has also been a professor, guiding numerous students to shining careers in symphony orchestras on four continents.
