On the Next All This Jazz: Highlighting the Music of Nelson Riddle, Wynton Marsalis, and More

Sep 19, 2020

Tune in for the next All This Jazz, airing at 9pm local time on Saturday the 19th, right here on Public Radio 89.5 / KWGS-FM (and freely streaming all over the place at publicradiotulsa.org)!

From Armstrong to Ellington to Bird, from Miles to Mary Halvorson to The Bad Plus, from Anat Cohen to Edward Simon to Vijay Iyer...ATJ offers three hours of modern jazz, both recent and classic, across a range of styles -- and we always employ a theme in the 11-to-midnight hour of our broadcast.

This time around, that theme will be Double Takes, as we'll hear two tracks apiece (in the third and final hour of our show) from four outstanding jazz albums: BUDDY DeFRANCO PLAYS NELSON RIDDLE’S CROSS COUNTRY SUITE (shown here; recorded 1958), JOHN COLTRANE MEETS JOHNNY HARTMAN (recorded 1963), FIVE PEACE BAND LIVE by John McLaughlin and Chick Corea (recorded 2008), and BLACK CODES (FROM THE UNDERGROUND) by Wynton Marsalis (recorded 1985).

Elsewhere in the program, we'll hear from the likable likes of Clifford Jordan, Randy Brecker, Sarah Vaughan, Conrad Herwig, and more.

Join us. If you're a jazz buff, then All This Jazz is **all you** -- ab-so-tively, friends.

(Two final points: ATJ playlist information can be found here...and we also have a Facebook page for our show. Thank you.)
