Omaha, Nebraska – Two bright stars, country maverick Willie Nelson and jazz icon Wynton Marsalis, unexpectedly meet on common ground: the blues.
Recorded earlier this year in New York, this soulful concert features songs by well-known American composers such as Hoagy Carmichael, Duke Ellington, and Merle Travis, as well as songs written by more obscure bluesmen Harry Warren, Spencer Williams, and Jimmy Reed.
Omaha, Nebraska – On Thursday's Jazz in the Afternoon Paul Serrato will join host Chris Cooke for an afternoon of music and conversation.
Serrato's latest recording is Pianomania, featuring more of the Latin-tinged jazz that has informed his previous efforts. Joining Pianist Serrato on the record are Bassist Hill Green and Conga player Henry Morales.
