Marcus Belgrave performs live in the studio with his wife, Joan, and tells WDET's Travis Wright about his career.

Belgrave's career skyrocketed the late 1950’s, touring and recording with the Ray Charles’ Orchestra. He's internationally recognized as one of the greatest jazz trumpet players, and in 2008 The City of Detroit named him Jazz Master Laureate.
