About Jazz with Peter Solomon
“Jazz has a recorded history that goes back almost one-hundred years and when I program music I try to reflect the full scope of that history. That means everything from current experimental artists to more traditional mainstream jazz groups. I strive to include a variety of styles and instrumentations - small group, big band and solo performances, vocals and instrumentals, Bebop, classic swing, Latin rhythms, funk, and free form.”
Jazz with Peter Solomon airs Weeknights starting at 7:00 p.m.
