On the Next Edition of All This Jazz: Setting the Signs of the Zodiac to Music
Hope (the stars align so that) you can tune in for the next broadcast of All This Jazz, beginning at 10pm on Saturday the 18th -- right here on Public Radio 89.5 (KWGS-FM)...and online via stream at PublicRadioTulsa.org.
In the first half of the program, we'll hear from Chick Corea, Paul Desmond, and others -- plus we'll check out the newly released "live duet from 1990" recording from Jim Hall and Charlie Haden (on the Impulse! label).
And then, for our dedicated and/or sleepless late-night listeners, the second-hour theme of ATJ will be Signs of the Zodiac. We'll thus hear such masterworks as Wayne Shorter's "Virgo," Woody Shaw's "In a Capricornian Way," selections from the "Zodiac Suite" by the brilliant and pioneering pianist/composer/arranger Mary Lou Williams, and more.
It'll be downright nifty. And lots o' fun. Join us.
(The fine print: All This Jazz [please see recent playlist data here] airs every Saturday night on Public Radio 89.5, from 10pm till midnight. We always thereafter offer a 7pm re-airing of the program on Sunday evening, on Jazz 89.5-2, which is our station's all-jazz HD Radio channel. Each week, we spin modern jazz, both recent and classic, across a range of styles. And the second half of our two-hour program, beginning at 11pm, invariably carries a theme. Also, for those of you so inclined: All This Jazz now maintains a Facebook page. Thank you; that is all.)
