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.

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.
