Friday at 1:00 pm
My show usually includes birthdays of famous and not so famous jazz musicians, recent releases, local artists, interviews, and classic jazz from the likes of Charlie Parker, Miles, Coltrane, Blue Note, Prestige, Riverside, etc. Heavy on the small group instrumental jazz; light on vocalists and big bands.
Victor Wooten February 8, 2013 | 1:00 pmVictor Lemonte Wooten is a unique human being. Born the youngest of five boys, he began learning to play music at the tender age of two. He started performing in nightclubs and theaters as the bassist with the family band at age five, and at age six, was on tour with his brothers opening shows for legendary soul artist Curtis Mayfield.
Wooten, now a five-time Grammy winner, hit the worldwide scene in 1990 as a founding member of the super-group Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. Continuing to blaze a musical trail with the band, Victor has also become widely known for his own Grammy nominated solo recordings and tours.
Victor brings his bass in to hang with the Jazz Geek, at 2pm.
The Jazz Freek December 7, 2012 | 1:00 pmMike Murphy fills in for Dr. Mike who was supposed to be filling in for the Jazz Geek, because Dr. Mike is doing Weekend Start tonight at 1am, so we didn't want to squeeze him dry. Take five, Dr Mike, Your Old Pal will take it from here. Mike will welcome Project Trio, high-octane chamber musicians with a “beat-box” flute player into the studio in anticipation of their performance tonight at the Polsky Theatre at Johnson County Community College. We'll also feature a tribute to the late Dave Brubeck, and some music for the Yuletide Season.
