This Sunday evening at 7 pm, Big Band Jazz presents The Jones Boys. That's Jones as in Quincy, Thad, Hank, and Elvin.
All-everything composer, arranger, and winner of just about every award Quincy Jones led bands in the 50's and 60's. Although some know him mainly as a record producer of stars new and not so new, it's always good to hear a taste of his jazz band chops.
Join us on Friday, June 14th at 6:30 PM as Jeff Duperon welcomes renowned flutist and composer Bobbi Humphrey. Often referred to as the "First Lady of the Flute" by the critics and listeners alike, Bobbi has been playing her special brand of music to audiences around the world for over three decades.
Tune in this Saturday, June 15th, after the opera, when Mark Pinto will host a special New Releases. He's stretching out and broadcasting for us Mahler's last completed symphony, the Ninth. We can't spill the beans on whose recording it is, but it's gotten raves! You will not be disappointed.
If you have the time to tune in just for this monument of orchestral literature, get to your radio or point your browser to wrti.org by about 4:15 pm.
