New Orleans Saints defensive back Jabari Greer has already won a Super Bowl ring. Now, he’s about to fulfill one of his other lifelong dreams. Greer will co-host a radio show called ““Jazz from the French Market,” to be broadcast on New Orleans’ nonprofit, community supported radio station WWOZ. He says he grew up listening to the likes of Miles Davis and Donald Byrd. Signing with the Saints back in 2009 only gave Greer an even greater exposure to and appreciation for the jazz scene. Here’s how Greer describes his first impressions of New Orleans and its soul-gripping music culture. “I remember the day that I signed, it was a Wednesday. That night a good friend of mine took me to Frenchmen Street and I remember the life of the music on Frenchmen Street, it was incredible. I looked to him and said, ‘is this a Wednesday? This is a Wednesday night in which this is happening?’ I remember when I was in Buffalo, I would search weeks ahead of time for any live music events that were happening, and now living in New Orleans, all you have to do is go down the street. There is always something, there is always someone playing and something happening. I honestly felt like I couldn’t be in a better place.” Greer’s show will air Mondays from 4 p.m. to 7pm.
