On the Next All This Jazz: Remembering McCoy Tyner (1938-2020)

Mar 13, 2020

Join us for All This Jazz, starting at 9pm on Saturday the 14th, right here on KWGS / Public Radio Tulsa. It'll be three solid hours of can't-miss modern jazz -- all of it lovingly chosen and presented by an actual person, rather than an algorithm or robot. (!)

Also, in the 3rd and thematic hour of our show, running from 11pm till midnight, our focus will be Remembering McCoy Tyner. The legendary pianist and composer (and Coltrane sideman) died recently at age 81, and so we'll hear recordings from throughout his long career -- as well as a few choice cuts of other jazz greats playing Tyner's tunes. And elsewhere in our show, we’ll dig music by Michel Petrucciani, Stephane Grappelli, Randy Napoleon, Jane Monheit, The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, and many more.

Tune in, fellow jazz fans! Every Saturday night, both online and over the air, All This Jazz delivers both recent and classic jazz -- across a wide range of styles.

And please note that ATJ playlist info can be found here, at the bottom of the page.
