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.
