Please tune in for the forthcoming edition of All This Jazz, which gets underway at 10pm Central on Saturday the 20th here on Public Radio 89.5-1. (We'll also offer, as ever, a re-airing of our program at 7pm on Sunday the 21st on Jazz 89.5-2, which is our all-jazz HD Radio channel.)
All This Jazz spins modern jazz, both recent and classic --- and there's always a "theme" in the second half of our two-hour broadcast.
This week, after an intense if not nightmarish series of tragic events --- beginning, of course, with a pair of explosions at the Boston Marathon --- we'll present "Live in Boston" as our theme. It's meant as a small yet sincere gesture of support and goodwill to the people of the entire Greater Boston region --- and it'll feature terrific music, as recorded in venues throughout Beantown over the decades, by the likes of Jim Hall, Gerry Mulligan, Ray Brown, Billie Holiday, and more.
