Latin

American Routes boogies down to bayou country to catch live music at Festival International, a showcase of French music from southwest Louisiana and the wider Francophone world along with blues, Chicano nouveau and swamp pop. For the 31st annual festival, we hear female Cajun supergroup Bonsoir, Catin tear up the stage; bluesman Corey Harris ring out the Mississippi Delta's West African roots; and blue-eyed soul from swamp pop legends Johnnie AllanT.K. Hulin, and G.G. Shinn.

Chuck Sher is a long-time host of Jazz Connections, as well as a practicing jazz bassist, and a world-renowned jazz book publisher. His library of contemporary jazz is quite extensive and he really enjoys sharing his knowledge of the music and all the gems he has collected over the years - from Bill Evans to Keith Jarret to wonderful Brazilian and Latin music, and with a special focus on the best of European jazz players.  

Hear Jazz Connections Saturday nights 7:00-11:00 pm on KRCB-FM Radio 91!

Percussion Discussion focuses on percussionists, drummers and percussion instruments used in all genres of music from big band and smooth jazz and Latin to rock, country and World tunes. Host Jim Laveroni is a drummer and percussionist for over 40 years, and plays with two bands.
