Jazz with Jeff Duperon

Friday, 6 to 10 pm

Kick off your weekend with Jeff Duperon as he takes a cruise through the current. Jeff brings you the best of the new releases, and acts as a weekend planner. If there's music going on in the area, he'll tell you where to find it. And he always gets a visit from a visiting performer to talk about their music. Spend your Friday nights with Jeff…he'll help you find a new favorite artist, album, or piece of music.

If you think about it, jazz songs are some of the most romantic in existence.

It says a lot about his enduring hold on jazz listeners that over a half century into his career, the descriptive phrases most commonly put in front of Wayne Shorter's name — along with "the great saxophonist and composer" — remain "the elusive" and "the enigmatic." The inside tray card to Shorter's Without a Net, the runaway Best Album winner in this year's NPR Music Jazz Critics P

Originally published on Mon December 16, 2013 2:39 pm

For decades, Jimmy Amadie played solely in his home, heard only by his students when he'd play for them during lessons. His performing career was derailed because of severe hand problems. But later in life, he achieved some fame for his albums — and for the story of what he'd had to overcome to make it possible for him to record. Amadie died of lung cancer on Dec. 10. He was 76.
