On the Next All This Jazz, Music Inspired by Outstanding Visual Artists

"I'm not an art critic," as Mr. Burns on TV's The Simpsons once admitted, "but I know what I hate." There will be zero hate here, however, when we offer an art-appreciation-driven third hour on our next program. For the next All This Jazz broadcast -- beginning at 9pm on Saturday the 3rd, right here on KWGS-FM -- our thematic hour (from 11pm till midnight) will be Jazz Tunes Inspired by Art and Artists. We'll thus hear memorable jazz numbers created in tribute to the likes of Grant Wood, Romare Bearden, Alexander Calder, Picasso, and more.... And elsewhere in our show, we shall dig the music of Wallace Roney, Mike Clark, Tom Harrell, Nina Simone, et al.
 
Every Saturday night, ATJ delivers three hours of recent and classic jazz, across a range of styles, from 9 o'clock till midnight. We also offer a 7pm re-airing of our show on Sunday evenings, on Jazz 89.5-2, which is Public Radio Tulsa's all-jazz HD Radio channel.
 
From Don Cherry to Don Byron, Paul Motian to Paul Desmond, Duke Ellington to Duke Pearson, and Kenny Wheeler to Kenny Barron, All This Jazz is delighted by modern (and post-modern!) jazz in its many forms, and we dig sharing the same with our listeners.

(Also, note that ATJ playlist information can usually be found here, although you'll have to scroll down a bit...and we also maintain a Facebook page for our show. Thank you.)
