Shows - The Jazz River | Sunday 5 to 6pm

My first jazz show was MJQ at age ten. Then it was Muddy Waters at 14 and the original Charles Lloyd Quartet at 15, and I’ve been hooked on good music ever since. Being an urban anthropologist made me interested in how jazz and world cultures interact.

“…The music represents an ideal of what a social structure can be in a society. Where people can really be themselves and at the same time work together to create something that is unified and shared.” -Dave Holland.

Matthew is the host of The Jazz River, a cousin to the late great Scotty’s Origins-Orgy in Rhythm.
