In the days before President Barack Obama addressed the Muslim world in Egypt, the U.S. government was already trying a different type of diplomacy. Jazz musicians have long served as official cultural ambassadors for the U.S. State Department.

An article about cultural diplomacy was the topic of a recent discussion on NPR's new jazz blog, called A Blog Supreme. NPR music producer and blog editor Patrick Jarenwattananon joins host Liane Hansen to talk about the site.
