THE ANNALS OF JAZZ WITH RICHARD HADLOCK Sundays at 7 pm

Since 1959, host Richard Hadlock has been improvising on historical themes and bringing forth worthy performers—from Armstrong to Zorn. Each Sunday, we may find Annals in Europe, Asia, Latin America or Back of Town anywhere.

JAZZ PROFILES WITH NANCY WILSON Monday at 9 pm 5/6

Pianist/Composer John Lewis

5/13 Vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson 5/20 Pianist Chucho Valdes As a pianist, composer, and bandleader, Jesus "Chucho" Valdes is one of the titans of Latin music. He can play hard, like a winter storm-so hard that he has actually broken strings. Or he can caress the keys like a light, spring mist, producing a sound that is energizing and unique. Chucho is the founder and leader of Irakere, one of Cuba's top Jazz groups. Today, he continues the long history of collaboration between Cuban rhythm and American jazz.

5/27 Saxophonist Sam Rivers The career of saxophonist, pianist, and composer Sam Rivers (b. 1930) includes tenures with T-Bone Walker, Billie Holiday, Dizzy Gillespie, and Miles Davis. But his reputation was forged in the '60s and '70s avant-garde, playing with Cecil Taylor and then leading his own units. This included a series of remarkable trios and a big band that could swing with a vengeance. Rivers' Studio Rivbea, in Manhattan, was at the epicenter of the '70s "loft jazz" scene, where musicians worked out new concepts in collective jazz.

JAZZ AT LINCOLN CENTER WITH WENDELL PIERCE Tuesday at 9 pm 5/7

Chick Corea The boundless creative spirit and pianist Chick Corea spins from jazz to classical to the avant garde. Musicians of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra expand the Corea songbook with their own arrangements. Chick Corea joins them on acoustic piano for Matrix, Crystal Silence and Tones for Joan’s Bones.

5/14 Essentially Ellington 5/21 Eddie Palmieri Retrospective

‘La Perfecta’ – pianist and composer Eddie Palmieri’s first band – aptly describes his perfect mix of driving Afro-Cuban grooves and jazz rhythms. Palmieri takes the helm with two of his ensembles – the Eddie Palmieri Orchestra and AfroCaribbean Jazz Octet – in this high-octane retrospective, honoring his half century of music.

Vocalist Jane Monheit has tempered her phenomenal vocal range and musical intuition with perhaps the rarest gift of all: restraint. The thirty something singer has already performed with top artists including Ron Carter, Terrence Blanchard, and the late Michael Brecker, and she‘s sure to stick around for years to come. On this 2001 Piano Jazz, with host McPartland at the piano, Monheit performs My Foolish Heart, Nice Work If You Can Get It, and McPartland’s tune, In The Days Of Our Love.
