Title JALC Radio - SF Jazz Collective
Season 16, Episode 51
Airdate 09/10/2009
Description In 2004, San Francisco Jazz Festival presenter Randall Kline and the saxophonist Joshua Redman agreed – there wasn’t enough new jazz music being written. And much of what had been written in the late twentieth century– even by artists as well known as Herbie Hancock and McCoy Tyner - wasn’t being treated as part of the core repertoire. To remedy the situation, they put together “the SF Jazz Collective.” Featuring eight top-flight musicians who agreed to put some weeks aside from their own ensembles to rehearse and tour with the SF Jazz Collective.

Title JALC Radio - Best of the Cuban Big Bands
Season 16, Episode 37
Airdate 06/04/2009
Description On this side of the Carribbean it’s all too easy to forget that jazz and Latin are intertwined. Each shaped the other as they swung and sizzled their way through the 20th century. Maestro Paquito D’rivera and company remind us forcefully, dramatically and romantically, of ties that forever link names like Mario Bauza, Chico O’Farrill, Ernesto Duarte, not only to the greatest of the Cuban big bands but to the musical fortunes of jazz giants Dizzy Gillespie, Benny Goodman and many more.
