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.

Originally published on Wed December 18, 2013 7:00 pm

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.

ICON Suggests: Pianist and Composer John Escreet's SABOTAGE AND CELEBRATION

British pianist and composer John Escreet

Ever since he released his debut recording, Consequences, on Posi-Tone Records in 2008, British pianist John Escreet has persisted in pushing at boundaries. On his subsequent rhythmically adventurous recordings you can hear the influence of avant-pianist Andrew Hill and former teacher Jason Moran, but as beguiling as those recordings were, they were more like really good sketch books with one or two amazing tunes with ideas for days and musician line-ups where everyone, none more so than the pianist, played their ass off.
