Jazz on TV, Every Week

Saying it is bringing jazz to national network television in a weekly series for the first time in 40 years, PBS announced yesterday plans to begin "Legends of Jazz" on June 16 with a one-hour show that will feature winners of the National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Masters Awards. The show, with guests including the singers Nancy Wilson and Jon Hendricks, the saxophonist James Moody, the Latin jazz artist Paquito D'Rivera and George Wein, a founder of the Newport Jazz Festival, will be followed in the fall by 13 weekly 30-minute episodes that will combine live performance, conversation and archival material.
