Starting from the crosshairs of 60’s hard bop, Jazz Advance moves through time and location, covering everything from contemporary Northern European avant garde to Brazilian bossa nova and rare groove to the cake walks of the early 1900s. This program draws from personal record collecting and in-studio performances of local and international players. Each show finds a unique look at this ever evolving and always influential form called Jazz.
