Jazz for Black History Month (on the Next ATJ)

Feb 19, 2021

Join us for the next All This Jazz, starting at 9pm on Saturday the 20th, right here on KWGS-FM / Public Radio Tulsa. It'll be three solid hours of can't-miss modern jazz, both recent and classic.

And in the theme-driven, 11-to-midnight hour of our broadcast -- as we listen back to a fine show that first aired one year ago -- our focal point will be Jazz for Black History Month. Thus we'll hear compositions mindful of African-American history (songs both newly-crafted and long-familiar) from Charles Lloyd, Nina Simone, Christian McBride (shown here), and more. Elsewhere in our program, we'll dig the music of (to name but a few) Donald Brown, The Thad Jones / Mel Lewis Orchestra, Helen Merrill, and Andrew Hill.

 

Tune in, jazz buffs! Every Saturday night, both online and over the air, we deliver top-notch jazz across a wide range of styles. Indeed, All This Jazz is delighted by modern (and post-modern!) jazz in its many forms, and we love sharing the same with our listeners.

Finally, note that ATJ playlist data can be found here, at the bottom of the page...and that we also maintain a Facebook page for our show. Thank you for listening.
