Sunday Jazz with Jeff Duperon

Sunday, 8 pm to 12 midnight

Wind down your weekend with Jeff Duperon as he brings you new, creative interpretations of your favorite jazz standards.  You'll enjoy fresh arrangements and orchestrations, like a Big Band version of a Monk tune, or a young vocalist bringing life to the music of Lady Day or belting out a "not-so-standard standard."  Jeff occasionally features concert broadcasts from local venues and festivals.  Tune in to hear what happens when new life is breathed into the classics.
