Join host Doug Jayne, Saturday night at 7:00 pm, for 4 hours of great music on Jazz Connections!

From Doug:

"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!!  

Tuesday night on Beale Street Caravan:  

Beale Street Caravan features Memphis’ own Motel Mirrors as they celebrate the release of their newest studio effort, “In The Meantime.”
