Saturdays 7 PM - 11 PM
Hosted by Chuck Sher and Larry Slater.
Classic jazz from the '20s through the present with a knowledgeable and passionate host each week.
Chuck Sher - 1st Saturday of each month:
Chuck Sher is a long-time KRCB host of Jazz Connections, as well as a practicing jazz bassist, and a world-renowned jazz book publisher. His library of contemporary jazz is quite extensive and he really enjoys sharing his knowledge of the music and all the gems he has collected over the years---from Bill Evans to Keith Jarret to wonderful Brazilian and Latin music, and with a special focus on the best of European jazz players.
Doug Jayne - Weeks 2 and 4:
I was drawn to the music of the Big Bands as a kid, watching my dad reminisce and play his rare Glenn Miller tapes. As I grew up and starting digging progressive rock, I expanded into progressive Jazz, such as John McLaughlin, Weather Report and their ilk. When I started in the record biz in 1975, I was enlightened by my customers, some true Jazz fans that showed me the albums to check out. Miles and Mingus and Monk: Oh MY!!
I started hosting Jazz Connections way back in 1996: Just a crazy 42 year old with a dream.
As the years went by, I introduced new volunteers to KRCB, who would become Jazz Connections hosts. Glen Alpert, Larry Slater the Jazz MD, Big Man Howard, and Toby Gleason to name a few. I stepped away from hosting Jazz several years ago, but when the opportunity to do Jazz Connections came up recently , I took it!
I love this music...
