Join host Michael Wulfsohn Monday night for “Wulfie’s Wax Museum,” on the Monday Night Beat, as we celebrate the life and birthday of one of the most prolific, and all-time great jazz flutists, Herbie Mann.  Herbie released over 85 albums as a leader in his lifelong career. We’ll listen to his 21st release, and his first on Atlantic Records, “The Common Ground.” This highly intriguing album blends Afro-Caribbean, Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, West, North and Central African music into what he calls, “Afro-Jazz.”

Arturo Gómez

On the week of December 18, yours truly, Arturo Gómez, will spotlight five influential purveyors of Latin jazz who are non-Latinos. I will play two songs by each artist selected for each day of the week through Friday, December 22. The first song by the daily artist will be aired at approximately 12:12pm, and the second one will be played around 12:54pm MT.
