Celebrating the Art of Jazz

With the passing of venerable KBOO host David Lifton, Rita Rega will continue in David’s time slot to celebrate the art of jazz. The show “The World of Jazz” will look at this ever changing art-form and it's rich tradition. New releases will segue to familiar classics and back again. Informed conversation about our jazz community will also be presented.
