This Monday, October 27th, we’ll present another edition of our special feature…MONDAY WITH THE MASTERS on Beyond Jazz featuring an hour of the music of the great musical visionary, FRANK ZAPPA. You’ll get the mojo behind the music from two jazz greats who worked with Zappa, Jean-Luc Ponty & George Duke and you’ll hear Zappa’s unique vision of modern jazz from the great composer, guitarist, bandleader and innovator who carved out his own special place in music history. Listen for MONDAY WITH THE MASTERS every Monday at Noon Eastern/9 AM Pacific, with a replay Monday nights at 9 PM Eastern/8 PM Pacific, and this week it’s FRANK ZAPPA!

Every Wednesday night at 9 PM Eastern/6 PM Pacific and Sunday at 8 PM Eastern/5 PM Pacific you can spend an hour in the world's only imaginary modern jazz club, BJ's, for rare live performances by the biggest stars of Modern Jazz.  You'll hear music you can't hear anywhere but on XM, and this week, while the 40th edition of the Festival Internacional de Jazz de Barcelona is going on, we’ll take you to that beautiful city in Spain to hear legendary keyboardist CHICK COREA joined by his band TOUCHSTONE comprised of virtuoso flamenco/jazz players from all over the world.  Listen as they bring to life the magical music of Chick’s chart-topping 2006 release “The Ultimate Adventure” in front of a roaring crowd in the country that has long been a place of personal inspiration for Chick.   It’s CHICK COREA LIVE IN BARCELONA on this week’s addition of LIVE @ BJ'S!

Every Friday we present an exclusive Beyond Jazz feature that focuses on the moment in jazz history when the music became electric and all the musical influences of the world blended with jazz to create the Fusion Era. Beginning at 7 AM Eastern/4 AM Pacific until midnight Eastern/9 PM Pacific we’ll begin each hour with a classic fusion piece and give you the mojo behind this controversial era in jazz history. Some say fusion ruined jazz, while others say it saved the music.  You know how we feel, so listen and make up your own mind. IF IT’S FRIDAY, THIS MUST BE FUSION on XM 72, BEYOND JAZZ. 

Every Saturday is a chance to get to know the stars of Modern Jazz a little better with WORDS & MUSIC on BEYOND JAZZ, and on this Saturday, November 1st , we'll look back at 7 years of wonderful conversations with great artists with a special presentation titled THE BEST OF WORDS & MUSIC! Since Beyond Jazz began operation in 2001, Russ Davis has spoken with the greats of Modern Jazz and now it’s time to look back on those conversations and pick out his favorite moments to share with you all through the day.  You’ll hear those rare WOW moments with Joe Zawinul, Pat Metheny, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, John Scofield and many more.  Interview segments followed by music air each hour beginning at Noon and lasting through Midnight Eastern time (9 AM-9 PM Pacific). It's THE BEST OF WORDS & MUSIC, this Saturday on WORDS & MUSIC.
