Hi-Rotation jazz selections featured 3 times an hour during jazz programming.

This month, a lot of energy from the Dave Lalama Big Band, a reunion production from Hofstra University. All musicians are current students or alumni. Pittsburghs’ own Tony DePaolis from his 2 disc set  ‘The Contemporary Dynamic:’ Sean Jones solos. ‘Soulful’ from Uli Geissendorfers CD ‘Colors’/ Uli G’s daytime job is arranging and conducting for all 6 Cirque De Soleil Vegas shows. Wave Mechanics Union shows us ‘The Ability to Swing.’ Check out the special tongue in cheek nod to Peter Sellers in Clouseau. Just a few of the high-lights from our Top picks. Put it in your ears.
