On the Post-Thanksgiving Edition of All This Jazz: Lots of Great Old American Songs

Nov 23, 2017

Join us for the next All This Jazz, starting at 9pm on Saturday the 25th, right here on KWGS / Public Radio Tulsa.

In the wake of that great old American holiday known as Thanksgiving, our third-hour theme (running from 11pm till midnight) will be Great Old American Songs -- and so we'll hear jazz takes on such classic themes as, to name a few, “Bye Bye, Blackbird” (a 1920s Tin Pan Alley ditty that’s been recorded hundreds of times), “In the Gloaming” (a popular song dating back to the 1870s), and “Streets of Laredo” (an old cowboy ballad first published in 1910). And elsewhere in our show, we'll dig the music of Catherine Russell, The Jazz Passengers, Rez Abbasi, Stefon Harris, and more. Join us!

Every Saturday night, both online and over the air, ATJ delivers three hours of recent and classic jazz -- across a wide range of styles -- from 9 o'clock till midnight. From John Coltrane to John Zorn, Woody Herman to Woody Shaw, Chris Connor to Kris Davis, and Gerry Mulligan to Geri Allen, All This Jazz is delighted by modern (and post-modern!) jazz in its many forms, and we love sharing the same with our listeners.

Also, please note that ATJ playlist information can be found here, at the bottom of the page...and that we maintain a Facebook page for our show. Thank you.
