THE ANNALS OF JAZZ WITH RICHARD HADLOCK Sundays at 7 pm

Each Sunday, we may find Annals in Europe, Asia, Latin America or Back of Town anywhere.

Monday at 9 pm 7/2
One of the consummate sidemen in Europe during the heyday of American expatriates, Catalan pianist Montoliu played with all of the major horn players who made a home across the waters, including Dexter Gordon and Don Byas.
A longtime mainstay of the progressive jazz scene in NYC, tenor saxophonist Eskelin has a broad and warm sound, which he combines with an idiosyncratic and slippery approach to the horn that keeps his diverse projects fresh and forward-leaning.
7/16 Alice Coltrane
Before Alice Coltrane rose to prominence playing in her husband John’s late-period ensembles, she had established herself as a unique voice on the piano and harp. After John's passing, she continued to record and perform a distinctive take on the spiritual free jazz of the 60’s. The result? Continued appreciation by jazz diehards, hipsters and hippies.
7/23 Art Lande
A distinctive pianist, drummer, and guru of creative music, Lande has been inspiring young players and recording since '73. His mentorship and education of young musicians has had a huge effect on the landscape of jazz, and his music is deeply melodic and intelligent.
7/30 Ian Carey
Ace trumpet player Ian Carey has distinguished himself by leading bands, releasing records, and writing funny and incisive blogs about jazz. His compositions are incredibly rich and complex pieces that breathe life into challenging harmony and creative forms.
JAZZ Night in America with christian mcbride Tuesday at 9 pm 7/3
On this episode of Jazz Night in America, we go to Clarksdale, Mississippi, where struggling musicians are finally beginning to reap the benefits of a recent wave of Blues tourism, to get a temperature reading, at ground level, of the Blues.
7/10 The Robert Glasper Experiment
The Robert Glasper Experiment performs live at Summerstage in New York City.
7/17 The GroundUP Festival
Jazz Night in America meets up with Bela Fleck, Joshua Redman and Snarky Puppy’s Mike League at his new festival, GroundUp, in Miami Florida.
7/24 Benny Green and Sean Jones
The pianist and trumpeter perform at Jazz at Lincoln Center, and share their thoughts on the state of jazz and jazz education in conversation with Christian McBride.
7/31 Cyrille Aimée And Daymé Arocena Make Jazz Their Own
Vocalists Cyrille Aimée And Daymé Arocena, each a cultural ambassador as well as a cosmopolitan, with the elusive ability to bring any audience along for the ride, recorded live at the 2017 San Jose Jazz Summer Fest by KCSM Jazz 91.
Jazz 91 Preview
piano jazz WITH marian mcpartland Wednesday at 9 pm
Pianist and vocalist Barbara Carroll (1925–2017) was described as a joyous and swinging jazz stylist who had a monumental career. When she was a guest on Piano Jazz in 1979, she had just started her engagement at Bemelmans Bar in Manhattan.
7/11 Don Byron
Pulitzer Prize finalist and 2007 Guggenheim Fellow Don Byron is a prodigious multiinstrumentalist and composer. One of the most inventive and compelling musicians of his generation, he is credited with reviving interest in the jazz clarinet, his primary instrument. He has presented projects at major music festivals around the world and is known for playing in a wide variety of genres.
7/18 Renee Rosnes
Pianist and composer Renee Rosnes has established a reputation as one of the premier jazz musicians on the scene. Over her 30-year career, Rosnes has collaborated with a diverse range of artists, from established masters such as Jack DeJohnette to younger giants such as Christian McBride and Melissa Aldana.
7/25 Tony Bennett
Ever-popular song stylist Tony Bennett was McPartland’s guest for the first time in 1990. Bennett vocalizes American popular songs like nobody else can. When he was starting out, a voice teacher, Miriam Spier, famously told him: “Don’t imitate singers, imitate musicians.” So, Bennett decided to emulate Art Tatum with inspiration by Mildred Bailey.
JAZZ PROFILES WITH NANCY WILSON Thursday at 9 pm 7/5
Vocalist Hartman followed in the wake of Billy Eckstine and Nat “King” Cole, two singers who personified the “black baritone movement” of the late ‘40s and ‘50s. Overshadowed by these two, Hartman never achieved the popularity he deserved. Through the release of the soundtrack to Clint Eastwood’s Bridges Of Madison County and the re-release of a recording with John Coltrane, the public rediscovered this wonderful balladeer.
7/12 Ahmad Jamal
This fine pianist is noted for his very melodic improvisations, lean style, use of space, and simple embellishments. His ensemble was one of the most popular and influential trios of the ‘50s and ‘60s. A lyrical, gently swinging musician, Jamal’s playing is a constant delight.
7/19 Lionel Hampton Part 1
This show looks at vibraphonist Hampton’s career, starting from his birthplace of Birmingham, Alabama, to his beginnings as a percussionist in the Chicago Defender Newspaperboy’s Band. It also looks at his virtuosity, style, showmanship, and relentless energy which contributed to pioneering work with Louis Armstrong and Benny Goodman.
7/26 Lionel Hampton Part 2
This show picks up with vibraphonist Hampton’s career in the wake of “Flying Home.” It looks at Hampton the bandleader, how his bands adapted to the bebop revolution and nurtured new talent and examines how the band’s affairs were ruled by the iron hand of Hampton’s wife, Gladys, how they survived the jazz drought of the ‘60s by forming their own record company, how Hampton’s political, social, and financial activities began to consume his seemingly limitless energy.
