On the Next All This Jazz: Hommage to Rudy Van Gelder


Rudy Van Gelder -- the brilliant, prolific, late-great recording engineer who ever-so-carefully captured the sound on thousands of jazz albums, including classics like John Coltrane’s “A Love Supreme,” Horace Silver’s “Song for My Father,” and Herbie Hancock’s “Maiden Voyage” -- will be in the spotlight on the next All This Jazz. The show starts at 9pm on Saturday the 16th, right here on KWGS-FM / Public Radio Tulsa. (We’ll be listening back to a program from August of 2016, when Van Gelder had recently died.)

Every Saturday night, both online and over the air, ATJ delivers three hours of recent and classic jazz, across a wide range of styles, from 9 o'clock till midnight. From John Coltrane to John Zorn, Woody Herman to Woody Shaw, Duke Jordan to Duke Pearson, and Chris Connor to Kris Davis, All This Jazz is delighted by modern (and post-modern!) jazz in its many forms, and we love sharing the same with our listeners.

The next ATJ broadcast will also offer, along with our tribute to Mr. Van Gelder, outstanding tracks by the likes of Brad Mehldau, Bobby Sanabria, Charlie Haden, Earl Hines, Diana Panton, Toots Thielemans, and many more. Join us!

(Also, note that ATJ playlist info can be found here, at the bottom of the page...and that we maintain a Facebook page for our show. Thanks.)
