Next Time on All This Jazz: A Spotlight on Impulse! Records

Mingus-Impulse-LP.jpg

Listen for the next All This Jazz, beginning at 9pm on Saturday the 22nd, right here on Public Radio 89.5 KWGS-FM...and online by way of our "Listen Live" stream at PublicRadioTulsa.org.

Our program delivers three hours of modern jazz, across a range of styles, each and every Saturday night, from 9 o'clock till midnight. (We also offer a 7pm re-airing of ATJ on Sunday evenings, on Jazz 89.5-2, which is Public Radio Tulsa's all-jazz HD Radio channel.)

From Gerry Mulligan to Geri Allen, Dave Brubeck to Dave Holland, and Art Tatum to Art Farmer, All This Jazz is delighted by modern (and post-modern!) jazz in its many forms, and we dig sharing the same with our listeners.

And in the theme-driven, 11-to-midnight hour of our forthcoming program -- as we listen back to a terrific show that first aired about a year ago -- we'll celebrate the important jazz label known as Impulse! Records, which was started in 1960 (as a wing of ABC-Paramount) by the legendary record producer Creed Taylor...and which was "revived" in 2014 (as a part of the Universal Music Group). Nowadays known as "The House That Trane Built" -- thanks to a series of landmark recordings John Coltrane made for the label -- Impulse! also put out era-defining LPs by Oliver Nelson, Max Roach, Archie Shepp, Shirley Scott, Sonny Rollins, Charles Mingus, and many others.

So, again, in the 11 o'clock hour of the next ATJ, we'll hear lots of tasty cuts from the Impulse! label. And elsewhere in our program, tune in for tracks by Eric Dolphy, Charlie Hunter, Anat Cohen, Joe Locke, et al.

Join us! If you're a jazz fan, then All This Jazz is just exactly your speed.

(Two final points: ATJ playlist data can usually be found -- if you scroll down a little bit -- right here...and we also maintain a Facebook page for our show. Thank you.)
