Jazz After Dark

Live Tuesday 8-9pm
Replays Monday 10-11pm, Saturday 9-10pm


20th-century jazz--each show featuring instrumental and vocal jazz, usually presented in historical sequence. Occasionally contemporary, sometimes much older selections, lots from the 1940s to the 1980s. Some big band and swing, lots of cool jazz and West Coast, some fusion, a little bebop. Usually some boogie woogie, blues, bossa nova. Always something by Ella.
