Landmark Jazz

Hello wonderful fans of WNJR! It's the start of Intersession and the staff at WNJR and I hope you had a relaxing break. This year we have a new jazz show that has already had a couple of shows and we'd like to make you guys aware of it.

Landmark Jazz is hosted by community member Jonathan Miles. The show lays the groundwork of jazz that has turned into the music we recognize today. Jonathan will tell the story of jazz through its music and history. Explored will be the building blocks of jazz, such as Big Band, Swing, and Bebop. Jonathan will take us from the old style of New Orleans and Louis Armstrong, traveling up the Mississippi to Kansas City, St. Louis, Chicago, to the east coast, west coast and then the world. If you want to take a listen tune in on Wednesdays from 10AM-12PM here or 91.7FM. You won't regret it!
