Jon Batiste is one of the most brilliant, prolific and accomplished musicians today.

For seven years, he was the bandleader and musical director of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. In 2020, he won an Academy Award for best original score for his work on the Pixar film Soul. In 2022, he won five Grammy Awards, including album of the year for We Are.

His new album World Music Radio is full of inspiration. With it, Batiste is on a mission to create community and expand culture with the power of music. He joined us in the Gumbo Kitchen to tell us more about it.
