Lucky Old Souls

Every Tuesday at 2 p.m., Feldie brings you two hours of the hottest, swingin-est jazz and R&B tracks from back in the day... and I mean back in the day, as in 50, 60, 70+ years ago. That's right... The best jazz, pop standards, blues of all kinds, early rock & roll, songs that were hits, and songs that should have been hits. We're not nostalgic--we just know that music transcends time... and a hit is a hit.

The Jazz Continuum (Saturdays, 6-8pm) Celebrate Women’s History Month with The Jazz Continuum.

This week, we showcase music by pianist Satoko Fujii, a global artist whose music spans many genres, blending jazz, contemporary classical, rock, and traditional Japanese music into an innovative synthesis instantly recognizable unique to her. Then, we’ll visit the music of the late Geri Allen, a widely influential jazz pianist, composer and educator whose work encompassed a wide swath of jazz history. She is a model for the 21st-century jazz musician who deftly balances tradition and innovation.

The Jazz Continuum (Saturdays, 6-8pm): Vocal Tangent
Hosted by David Brown
WGGT-LP Philadelphia

In the decades that I’ve been infatuated with Jazz, I never gave time to vocalists. Then I heard Cécile McLorin Salvant sing. I finally got it. The phrasing, melodic improvisation, and rhythmic subtlety of jazz vocalists bring a new dimension to the music. I’ve been on a vocal tangent, exploring this unfamiliar dimension with a new found excitement. For today’s show, we’ll sample vocalist in the jazz tradition as well as some that push those boundaries.
