Jazz interpretations of classical composers and well-known compositions. Scores of Jazz Artists have serious classical Chops. From James Booker, Duke Ellington, Regina Carter, Art Tatum and more they flex these skills on record… Some played faithfully some with their own unique twist… both European & South American composers are featured.

How about Gypsy jazz playing Mozart, Tom Harrell interpreting Ravel, Wayne Shorter celebrating Hector Villa-Lobos, and Ellington doing Tchaikovsky?

Tune in to The Jazz River with host Matthew Goldwasser on Sunday, May 16, from 5-6 pm as we travel down this tributary and explore this relationship. Only on KUVO Jazz!
