Marcus Belgrave

 Every year at the Detroit Jazz Festival, Detroit musicians and singers return to perform and are greeted with enthusiastic applause and deep Detroit appreciation.  Among the many returning in 2014 is singer Barbara Morrison.   She was born in Ypsilanti, grew up in Romulus, graduated from Eastern Michigan University and left for Los Angeles when she was 23 to carve her own musical path.  Barbara Morrison and her very close friend Joan Belgrave joined Linda Yohn in the studio to talk about their parallel lives starting in Southeastern Michigan and ending up in Los Angeles.

Authorities say a trumpet stolen from Detroit jazz star Marcus Belgrave is back in his hands, while the suspected thief is in theirs. 

The Detroit Free Press says the horn was stolen Friday out of Belgrave's car in Detroit and arrived at a pawn shop. Police say an employee contacted officers to say the store had Belgrave's instrument.

The trumpet, made of copper, helps Belgrave create his signature sound. He says he won't press charges and may even give a reward if his trumpet is returned.
