"Judy Carmichael’s Jazz Inspired" is not just another jazz program, Judy asks celebrated people -- not only musicians, but politicians, actors, writers, and beyond - how jazz has inspired them. She takes us beneath the surface with a warm mix of conversation and music. Judy’s born to the Media. The microphone loves her voice, and she is incredibly articulate. Her approach is respectful of the past but startlingly contemporary. Jazz Inspired is ... well ... just that, ... inspired! —Max Morath

and... Judy Carmichael's Jazz Inspired goes to Switzerland! One of the most beautiful spots I've ever performed is Ascona, Switzerland, the lovely little Swiss town on Lago Maggiori at the foot of the Alps. This year I'll perform and record a series of Jazz Inspired conversations live on stage, with some of the great musicians performing at the festival. I'm alerting you all now, to give lots of time for summer vacation planning. Info: Happy 2010 and beyond! Judy What is Jazz Inspired, Inc?

That's my great pal, the wonderful tenor saxophonist Jeff Rupert who will be playing with me in Port Jefferson, NY May 8th and with my septet in Brazil in June. This was taken at breakfast in Brazilia before I'd learned to always wear sunglasses at breakfast.

Just to give you a taste of Ascona, here I am with the brilliant guitarist Joe Cohn. We're both sports maniacs so we were discussing a bike ride to Italy and if we could make it back in time for the gig. He and Chris Flory actually managed this feat, while I opted for the tennis court.

Upcoming Events in 2010!
