It Might as Well Be Swing: It's Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II on the Next All This Jazz
Here's hoping you can catch the next broadcast of All This Jazz, beginning at 10pm on Saturday the 12th, right here on Public Radio 89.5. (We'll also offer, per custom, a 7pm re-airing of ATJ on Sunday the 13th on Jazz 89.5-2 --- which is our station's all-jazz HD Radio channel --- and please note that you can learn more about our show, and can always access the latest playlist information, at this link.)
Each week, ATJ faithfully presents modern jazz, both recent and classic...from Louis Armstrong to Joe Zawinul, Geri Allen to John Zorn. And the second half of our two-hour program always carries a theme.
Next time around, as we listen back to a wonderful show that originally aired in November of last year, our latter-hour theme will be The Music of Rodgers and Hammerstein. Thus we'll hear modern-jazz takes on terrific tunes from "The King and I," "The Sound of Music," "South Pacific," "State Fair," and "Oklahoma!" --- as rendered by Christian McBride, Sonny Rollins, Bill Harris, and various other jazz greats.
Join us! Yours will be, without a doubt, a front-row seat, and you can bring along as many friends as you like.
