11 Apr Jazz Swamp
Legends of Traditonal Jazz & Country Blues, from the Swamps and Basin Street to the Crossroards and north to New York’s club scene. A free-form mix of this great American art form and the creative signature of this country. As the Smithsonian’s Behring Center website says, “Jazz is about making something familiar–a familiar song–into something fresh. And about making something shared–a tune that everyone knows–into something personal. Those are just some of the reasons that Jazz is a great art form, and why some people consider it “America’s classical music.”
From Duke and Louis to Ella and Bessie. This show’s eclectic mix also includes Sun Ra to Big Bad Voodoo Daddy; Jelly Roll to Kermit Ruffins and Ornette Coleman to Benny Goodman. Swamp, Stomp, Swing, Ragtime, BeeBop, Cool Jazz, Free Jazz… And SO MUCH MORE!
-Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays: 6am to 8am Eastern Time.
