THE ANNALS OF JAZZ WITH RICHARD HADLOCK Sundays at 7 pm

The sound of surprise describes both jazz itself and the enduring premise of "The Annals of Jazz." 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.

JAZZSET WITH DEE DEE BRIDGEWATER Monday at 9 pm

11/4 Nicole Mitchell and Ice Crystal at the Kennedy Center 11/11 Ray Anderson Pocket Brass Band's "Sweet Chicago Suite" Trombonist Ray Anderson's (pictured) little New Orleans style band celebrates the windy city of his youth, in a New Jazz Work commissioned by Chamber Music America with funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and played at the Newport Jazz Festival.

11/18 Amir ElSaffar and Two Rivers

From his Iraqi heritage, ElSaffar (standing, far right) plays the santur and from his Chicago childhood, the trumpet. His band embraces both sides too, with lute-like oud and buzuq, tenor sax, bass and drums. "ElSaffar is winning over lots of people with invention, precision and emotion," music blogger Jim Macnie tweeted from the audience. The 2013 Newport Jazz Festival commissioned the music, with funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.

11/25 "Bix Factor" and Bandoneon from Umbria Jazz in Italy

JAZZ AT LINCOLN CENTER WITH WENDELL PIERCE Tuesday at 9 pm

11/5 Sweet Honey in the Rock

Grammy winning a-capella ensemble Sweet Honey in the Rock (pictured) shines a new light on the work of Odetta, Abbey Lincoln and Nina Simone – and marks their own 30 year anniversary with something new: a backing trio. Performances include Midnight Special, Love Me Or Leave Me, and Feelin’ Good.

11/12 Chucho Valdes and The Afro Cuban Jazz Messengers 11/19 Kurt Elling and Richard Galliano Vocalist Kurt Elling (pictured, right) and French accordionist Richard Galliano (pictured, left) transport us from the New York vista of the Allen Room to the cafes of Paris and the plazas of Buenos Aires. Don't miss this heartfelt collaboration exploring the art of the ballad. We’ll hear classics like Nicht Wandle, Mein Licht, an arrangement of the Beatles’ Norwegian Wood, and La Vie en Rose.

11/26 Maceo Parker: Funky Stuff

Funk’s living legend Maceo Parker (pictured) brings redblooded soul to the Allen Room. He’s played alongside James Brown, George Clinton, and Prince – but on his own, he’s a force to be reckoned with. Maceo Parker’s compositions burst with energy as he leads “the Tightest Little Funk Orchestra On Earth” through a set including Off The Hook, Georgia on My Mind, and Make It Funky.
