The late record producer Jerry Wexler has been called “The Godfather of Soul Music” and as a music reporter in the late forties, he coined the term “rhythm and blues” for what had previously been called “Race Records.” Jerry generously volunteered to be one of Judy’s first interviews for Jazz Inspired. Judy taped her conversation with Jerry at his home in East Hampton, NY in the fall of 2000 where he discussed his life-long love for jazz and how this love influenced his producing style with Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles and others.
