Holiday jazz

Looking for the perfect soundtrack for the holidays? Tired of the same old music? We've got a fix for that. We asked WRTI’s hosts and arts reporters to tell us their go-to holiday favorites. Here are their answers, and the memories, feelings, or just beautiful sounds that inspired them.

Spend your holiday season curled up and comfortable with your dial tuned to WRTI. We're bringing you warm doses of yuletide cheer during our regular jazz programs, with holiday classics from Nat King Cole and Duke Ellington nipping at your ears, along with soon-to-be holiday favorites from the Michael Treni Big Band and Gregory Porter.

Tune in to WRTI between now and January 1st as we sprinkle in your favorite seasonal jazz to accompany our regular programming.

Join your favorite jazz hosts for their favorite holiday jazz tunes! On Christmas Eve from 6 to 9 pm, and on Christmas Night, from 6 pm to midnight, they'll each bring you the best in seasonal jazz.
