Jazz with Maureen Malloy

Monday through Thursday, 9 pm to midnight

Maureen Malloy takes the reigns after BP "high-tails it," with an eclectic mix of different genres of jazz. Be it Modern, Post-Modern, Latin, Bop, Hard-Bop, Big Band or the singers (old and new), you'll always find something you like, and learn why you like it.  Musical guests also frequent the studio, so you can gain insight into how the jazz world turns, and who is creating new events and music.  Also featured are live tracks that give you a different outlook on familiar pieces of music, and make you feel like you were part of the artists' musical journey.

Maureen Malloy Suggests: Elegant Soul, The Life and Music of Gene Harris

The phrase "elegant soul" could describe numerous things: a person, a fashion, a way one deals with life. But after listening to Gene Harris' 1968 recording, I realized that the phrase perfectly describes Harris' style as a pianist. Beautifully accompanied by Andy Simpkins on bass and Carl Burnett on drums (the other "Two Sounds"), Harris plays in the classy way he has been known for, but this time he incorporated ribbons of gospel and maybe A dollop of funk. When you stir this all together, it equals Elegant Soul.

Omer Avital's Band Of The East: Live From 92Y Tribeca

Omer Avital.
John Rogers for NPR johnrogersnyc.com

Originally published on Fri December 7, 2012 8:30 am

Bassist Omer Avital came from Israel to New York in the early '90s and found himself among the top tier of straight-ahead modern jazz performers. The time in the big city led him to re-investigate his roots — his parents are from the Arab-speaking world — and in 2002, he returned to Israel to study traditional music and oud. Since returning, he's remained a monster bass player, but has also integrated his Middle Eastern musical interests into his composing.

Jimmy Katz

Originally published on Tue October 9, 2012 10:57 am

Born in Tel Aviv, Anat Cohen came to New York two decades ago to study the masters of jazz. In so doing, the clarinetist and saxophonist started a bit of a stampede: Today, Israel is exporting some of the most vital jazz out there.
