Next Time on All This Jazz: A Celebration of Impulse! Records

Oct 23, 2015

Listen for the next presentation of All This Jazz, beginning at 9pm on Saturday the 24th, right here on Public Radio 89.5 KWGS-FM...and online by way of our "Listen Live" stream at PublicRadioTulsa.org.

Our program delivers three hours of modern jazz -- across a vast and wonderful range of styles -- each and every Saturday night, from 9 o'clock till midnight. (We also offer a 7pm re-airing of ATJ on Sunday evenings, on Jazz 89.5-2, which is Public Radio Tulsa's all-jazz HD Radio channel.)

From Gerry Mulligan to Geri Allen, from Dave Brubeck to Dave Holland, from Art Tatum to Art Farmer, and from Duke Ellington to Duke Pearson, All This Jazz is delighted by modern (and post-modern!) jazz in its many forms, and we dig sharing the same with our listeners.

And in the theme-driven, 11-to-midnight hour of our forthcoming program, we'll offer a celebration of the important jazz label known as Impulse! Records, which was started in 1960 (as a wing of ABC-Paramount) by the legendary record producer Creed Taylor...and which was "revived" as recently as last year (as a part of the Universal Music Group). Nowadays known by some as "The House That Trane Built" -- thanks, of course, to a series of landmark recordings that John Coltrane made for the label -- Impulse! put out pioneering if not era-defining LPs by Oliver Nelson, Max Roach, Pharoah Sanders, Archie Shepp, Albert Ayler, Shirley Scott, Sonny Rollins, and many others. So, again, in the 11 o'clock hour of the next ATJ, we'll hear lots of tasty cuts from the Impulse! label. And elsewhere in our show, tune in for tracks by Eric Dolphy, Charlie Hunter, Anat Cohen, Chick Corea, Joe Locke, et al.

Join us! If you're a jazz fan, then All This Jazz is just your speed.

(Two final points: ATJ playlist data can usually be found -- or at least searched for, when you scroll down a bit -- right here...and we also maintain a Facebook page for our show. Thanks.)
