Christmas Tunes on All This Jazz
Join us for All This Jazz here on Public Radio 89.5-1 on Saturday the 22nd, beginning at 10pm. (There will also be a rebroadcast of this show on Sunday the 23rd [beginning at 7pm] on Jazz 89.5-2, our mighty fine all-jazz HD Radio channel.)
It's our Christmas show --- with seasonal songs from Bela Fleck, Vince Guaraldi, Stan Kenton, Duke Ellington, John Coltrane, Joe Williams, John Zorn, Michael Carvin, Matt Wilson, Chet Baker, Jimmy Smith (see album cover herewith), Dexter Gordon, and many others.
Regular listeners know that we always present a "second-hour theme" on our program --- this time around, however, as in years past on the ATJ immediately preceding the Christmas holiday, it's a single theme for both hours: namely, two solid hours of yuletide jazz, from ten till midnight.
It's All This Jazz, with modern jazz both recent and classic. Happy holidays.
