Vinyl Side of Midnight 2011


The Greening of Jazz

Tonight's show features at least three luminaries of M.S.U.'s Jazz Program:
bassist George DeLancey (of the Sailors/DeLancey Jazz Orchestra),
exquisitely understated pianist Sarah Slonim and fireball tenor player John
Beshay. I've been watching these three rising jazz stars develop their craft
over the past few years and look forward to interviewing them and listening
to some of their music tonight.

In addition, we'll talk about the M.S.U. Jazz Spectacular (4/14 - 4/16/11),
featuring bebop legend Jimmy Heath, hot trumpet sensation Jeremy Pelt,
vocalist Vanessa Rubin and the smoking Tia Fuller Quartet.  We'll listen to
some music by these artists as well as some from the MSU Professor's of
Jazz. All this and the jazz calendar.

Tune in and Go Green.
