Starting from the crosshairs of 60’s hard bop, Jazz Advance moves through time and location covering off everything from contemporary Northern European Avant Guard to Brazilian Bossa Nova, Rare Groove and Cake Walks of the early 1900’s. This program draws from personal record collecting to in studio performances of local and international players. Each show finds a unique look at this ever evolving and always influential form called Jazz.
