First Take

Five Points' celebrated brewery Spangalang (named for the classic jazz cymbal ride pattern) celebrates one year in business this weekend.  Co-founders Taylor Rees and Darren Boyd visited "First Take with Lando and Chavis" with stories and tastes.

Even though Rees, Boyd and Austin Wiley are experienced brewers, they're on feeling a bit giddy with the first year's success.  Their popular Belgian table beer "Sugarfoot" won a gold medal at the 2015 Great American Beer Festival.  "I think we brewed that beer a whopping month and a half after we opened," said Rees.

If you can play the piano, maybe there is room for you as well. But leave the real instruments, the soloing and all the rest to the men. For all the freedom and liberation that has been intimately associated with the history of Jazz, the struggles of women to find and secure their rightful places in the music has been an ongoing untold story.
