Since 1952, the jazz magazine DownBeat has elected musicians into its Hall of Fame. In all that time only two rock musicians were ever inducted, both posthumously. Jimi Hendrix in 1970 and Frank Zappa in 1994. This week’s Jazz River profiles both, exploring jazz’s influence on their music and their influence on jazz and other world music. Tune in Sunday, March 1 from 5-6pm (rmt) to hear the impact and influence of these two masters. Only on KUVO Jazz.
