The Secret Life of Scientists and EngineersThe Secret Life of Scientists and Engineers

Here’s our own Stephon Alexander, theoretical physicist and jazz saxophonist performing live. “I was a professor of Physics at Penn State (three years ago),” says Stephon. “I played every Friday at a jazz club called Bar Blue. The band played jazz standards, funk and afro-jazz. The name of the band was called STAQ (the Stephon Alexander quartet).”
