"Jazz Goes to the Movies" (on the Next Installment of All This Jazz)
Tune in, dear listeners, for All This Jazz, which kicks off at 10pm Central, come Saturday the 23rd, on Public Radio 89.5-1. As ever, we'll offer two hours of modern jazz, both recent and classic.
And with the 85th Academy Awards ceremony scheduled for Sunday night on ABC-TV, our second-hour theme on the program will be "Jazz Goes to the Movies." We'll therefore dig some terrific, ever-so-tuneful jazz takes on the music of Max Steiner, Alex North, Jerry Goldsmith, Quincy Jones, and other great film composers.
Plus we'll hear from such top-notch musicians as Joe Williams, Jason Marsalis, Maria Schneider, Sun Ra (in a very rare "sideman" appearance), Art Blakey, and more. Please join us for All This Jazz.
