Join host Doug Jayne, Saturday night at 7:00 pm, for 4 hours of great music on Jazz Connections!
"I was drawn to the music of the Big Bands as a kid, watching my dad reminisce and play his rare Glenn Miller tapes. As I grew up and starting digging progressive rock, I expanded into progressive Jazz, such as John McLaughlin, Weather Report and their ilk. When I started in the record biz in 1975, I was enlightened by my customers, some true Jazz fans that showed me the albums to check out. Miles and Mingus and Monk: Oh MY!!
I started hosting Jazz Connections way back in 1996: Just a crazy 42 year old with a dream.
As the years went by, I introduced new volunteers to KRCB-FM, who would become Jazz Connections hosts. Glen Alpert, Larry Slater the Jazz MD, Big Man Howard, and Toby Gleason to name a few. I stepped away from hosting Jazz several years ago, but when the opportunity to do Jazz Connections came up recently , I took it!
I love this music..."
