Next Time on ATJ: Excellent Live Recordings by Vincent Herring, Keith Jarrett, Lee Morgan, and More
Here's hoping you can tune in for the next broadcast of All This Jazz, beginning at 10pm on Saturday the 15th, right here on Public Radio 89.5. (We'll also offer, per custom, a 7pm re-airing of ATJ on Sunday the 16th on Jazz 89.5-2 --- which is our station's terrific all-jazz HD Radio channel --- and please note that you can learn more about our show, and can always get the latest playlist information, at this link.)
Each week, ATJ faithfully presents modern jazz, both recent and classic...from Louis Armstrong to Joe Zawinul, from Geri Allen to John Zorn. And the second half of our two-hour program always carries a theme.
Next time around, that latter-hour theme is one that we love to return to, every now and again: Live Recordings. In-the-studio albums are all well and good, of course, but the glorious, boundless, and decidedly improvisation-driven form of art-and-entertainment that we know as jazz music is best enjoyed in "live" performance --- "in person," as they say...and if not specifically in the flesh, then at least via on-location recording technology.
And so we'll hear cuts from a host of terrific live albums --- recent documents (such as Keith Jarrett's SOMEWHERE, from last year) as well as vintage ones (like Lee Morgan's LIVE AT THE LIGHTHOUSE, from 1970).
Join us! There's no cover, no minimum, and no worries.
