On the Next Edition of ATJ, We Throw the Spotlight on 21st Century Jazz

Sep 3, 2015

Join us for the next presentation of All This Jazz, airing on Saturday the 5th at 9pm local time here on Public Radio 89.5 KWGS-FM (and online via live stream at PublicRadioTulsa.org).

From Armstrong to Ellington to Bird, from Monk to Brubeck to Wynton, and from Miles to Metheny to MMW...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 "21st Century Jazz," as we dig various standout recordings that've been made from 2000 onward. Thus we'll hear vocalist Gregory Porter (from a 2013 CD), pianist Robert Glasper (from a 2007 release; shown here), guitarist Bill Frisell (recorded at a club in NYC in 2003), and more.

And elsewhere in our program, we'll listen to the likable likes of Don Cherry, Donald Byrd, Pat Martino, and Sonny Clark, to name but a few.

Do tune in, jazz fans. All This Jazz is "all you," for certain.

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