Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Milwaukee, Wisconsin

featuring Walter Beasley's "I Feel You"

Milwaukee has been a Great Lakes port since 1835, and its port has been important through the city’s long history as an industrial powerhouse. Over the past decade, Milwaukee has created a more postindustrial economy, but the Port of Milwaukee is still an important transport center for the city and the entire western Great Lakes region, including Chicago and Minneapolis/St. Paul.

The waters around the port are important to recreation and the city’s developing tourism industry. The Milwaukee Boat Line’s Iroquois, seen in this video, is the oldest passenger vessel still operating on the Great Lakes, and offers a variety of entertainment excursions.

Walter Beasley is a contemporary jazz saxophonist and a full professor at Boston’s Berklee School of Music. Beasley is influenced by R&B and, also a singer, has sometimes been compared to Grover Washington, Jr. Beasley has sold more recordings than any other full-time college professor.
