On this "encore edition" of All This Jazz, we're listening back to a program that first aired in early June of this year. It's a show for which our second-hour theme had an especially historical bent, for said theme was "Jazz Music Listed in the National Recording Registry."
Join us for All This Jazz here on Public Radio 89.5-1 on Saturday the 22nd, beginning at 10pm. (There will also be a rebroadcast of this show on Sunday the 23rd [beginning at 7pm] on Jazz 89.5-2, our mighty fine all-jazz HD Radio channel.)
It's our Christmas show --- with seasonal songs from Bela Fleck, Vince Guaraldi, Stan Kenton, Duke Ellington, John Coltrane, Joe Williams, John Zorn, Michael Carvin, Matt Wilson, Chet Baker, Jimmy Smith (see album cover herewith), Dexter Gordon, and many others.
Join us for the next edition of All This Jazz, which will set sail at 10pm Central on Public Radio 89.5-1 on Saturday the 15th. We'll hear music from Tom Harrell, Keith Jarrett, Terry Gibbs, Charles Mingus, Nels Cline, Lee Konitz, and many others.
Plus we'll listen to a cut from the cult-classic album, "Jazz Raga," recorded in the mid-1960s for Impulse by Gabor Szabo, the Hungarian guitar wizard; specifically, in tribute to the late Ravi Shankar, we'll hear a tune from this album called "Ravi" (a piece on which Szabo strums both the guitar and the sitar).
Listen for the next edition of All This Jazz, airing on Saturday the 8th on Public Radio 89.5-1, beginning at 10pm. We'll deliver two hours of modern jazz, both recent and classic --- as always --- and we'll be playing lots of music by the late, great Dave Brubeck.
Please join us for the next edition of All This Jazz, which begins at 10pm on KWGS 89.5-1 on Saturday the 1st. (And then we'll re-air the program the following night, Sunday the 2nd, on 89.5-2 --- which is our great all-jazz HD Radio channel here at Public Radio Tulsa --- beginning at 7pm.)
Our second-hour theme will be "Live Recordings." It's a theme we like to return to every so often, since jazz is, after all, a form of both art and entertainment that thrives --- indeed, subsists --- on live performance.
