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.

To Revive A Jazz City, A Philadelphia Musician Stages A Festival

Ernest Stuart, founder of the Center City Jazz Festival, performs during a mid-afternoon set with his quartet.

From the first downbeat of the first Center City Jazz Festival in Philadelphia, you could hear history in the air — and maybe history being made.

The Wade Dean Enspiration, a gutsy young quintet, led off the festival with "Gingerbread Boy" by Jimmy Heath, one of Philly's many homegrown jazz legends. It was 1 p.m. last Saturday, and the dim carpeted room upstairs at Fergie's Pub was starting to fill up.

Maureen Malloy Recommends…Gregory Porter: BE GOOD

Vocalist and composer Gregory Porter has released his much-awaited sophomore album, Be Good, the follow-up to Water, which made huge waves in the jazz world in 2010.  Sophomore albums tend to make fans and critics a bit nervous due to expectation and anticipation, so I'll save you some time and anguish - Gregory, once again, delivers!  Strong musicianship, horn arrangements by Kamau Kenyatta, and Porter's booming, yet expressive voice, make this record a true crowd-pleaser.
