Airmen of Note

Join us from Friday, May 22 to Monday, May 25 during jazz hours as we remember those who fought for our country by presenting jazz performed by United States military bands. Jeff Duperon kicks off the festivities on Friday, May 22nd at 6 pm with music from The West Point Jazz Knights, the U.S. Army Blues, and many other military bands, old and new. This music continues all weekend long, until the Hot 11 Countdown kicks off at 10:30 pm on Monday.  

We'll take a brief break from our “standard” marathon at 9 pm on Turkey Day to present a portion of this year’s Airmen of Note radio broadcast from the Jazz Heritage Series. In this hour-long special, the United States Air Force Band will feature a World War II and big band veteran, trombonist Doc Severinsen.  You'll hear this group of exceptional American musicians perform some standards, along with big band classics like "Flying Home" and "Jumpin' at the Woodside."
