Jazz & Beyond

Saturdays, 8am - 11am

From the early syncopation of Scott Joplin, to the bebop challenges of Dizzy and Bird, to the melancholy musings of Miles, the joy of Ella, and the intergalactic journeys of Sun Ra -- the music we call jazz has covered a lot of cultural territory.  The conversation has lasted 100 years, and it keeps getting richer.  Your voice is a part of it, on Jazz and Beyond.

Whether working as a band leader, a side-man, an educator, or an ambassador for the music, Vibraphonist Jason Decristofaro is a crucial player in the Western North Carolina jazz scene.  He joins Roland this Saturday during the 9:00 AM hour of Jazz and Beyond to discuss the regional jazz scene and spin tunes from some of the region's finest musicians.
