Program of the Week, July 16: The New Jazz Archive

Wednesdays from 8 – 9pm

Hosted by Jeff Haas, from Interlochen radio

Curious about jazz but don’t know much about it? If so, this show is for you.

We understand that jazz often needs a proper introduction and Jeff seeks to open people’s ears to the music not just by spinning discs, but by showing how jazz connects to the things that already matter to us: from movies, television and pop culture, to important social issues, to the economy and technology, to other forms of music. In other words, we don’t just assume jazz is important—we show you why through compelling interviews with some of the music’s big thinkers, vibrant storytelling, and music that represents the full gamut of jazz’s rich history. And because we use storytelling as our approach to the music, if you’re a person who likes a good story, you’ll probably like this show.
