Cafe Jazz

Feb 21, 2024 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

Music

Three hours of Big Band, Bebop and Beyond, Café Jazz is a mix of original vinyl recordings with contemporary jazz releases on CD. The show is energetic, classic and classy. It is filled with lots of fulsome big band sounds, with horns that swing so hard you can almost see the suited gents moving in sync. The show also features the very best of the Bebop era and Straight Ahead jazz. It's a feel-good program, that is all about having a good time with the music.
