Expect nothing but mostly Christmas music when Doug Crane hosts a very special Night Beat Jazz Beyond Category on Wednesday evening December 23, beginning at 8 pm.

Doug has chosen some of his long-time favorites and tossed in a batch of recent recordings. He’ll feature performers from around the world including Tia Fuller, Angelique Kidjo, Harry Connick Jr., Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, the vocal sextet Accent, Anna Maria Jopek, John Pizzarelli, Fats Waller and more.

On the lighter side Doug’s pulling out a classic comedy record by Stan Freberg and from Jack Sheldon, a cynical take on the life of a jazz musician playing for yet another season of holiday parties back when holiday parties were a thing.
