Bird Lives! (Next Time on All This Jazz: A Charlie Parker Birthday Broadcast)

Aug 29, 2015

Tune in for the next edition of All This Jazz, right here on Public Radio 89.5 KWGS-FM, at 9pm on Saturday the 29th -- or online via live stream at publicradiotulsa.org. (We'll also re-air the show on Sunday the 30th at 7pm on Jazz 89.5-2, which is our station's all-jazz-all-the-time HD Radio channel.)

Our program delivers three hours of modern jazz -- across a range of styles -- each and every Saturday night, from 9 till midnight.

On the forthcoming installment of ATJ: Joe Locke, Kenny Burrell, Jimmy Rushing, SFJAZZ Collective, Donald Brown, Jason Adasiewicz, and many more. And in the theme-driven, 11-to-midnight hour of All This Jazz, we'll be featuring songs by Charlie Parker in honor of his birthday. (The legendary bebop saxophonist was born on 8/29/1920 in Kansas City and died in New York at age 34.) Bird's tunes will be played the likes of Chet Baker (in the early 1960s), Claude Thornhill (in the late 1940s), and David Hazeltine (in 2013).

Join us, jazz fans. You'll be glad you did.

(Two final points: ATJ playlist information can usually be found here...and we also maintain a Facebook page for our show. Gracias.)
