Performance http://redriverradio.org en Newport Jazz Festival: Jim Hall Trio With Julian Lage http://redriverradio.org/post/newport-jazz-festival-jim-hall-trio-julian-lage <p><strong>Airs Monday, June 23 at 8 p.m. </strong>One of the finest guitar players in jazz history — who made all those classic records with Sonny Rollins, Bill Evans, Ron Carter and so on — is still at it at age 82. Fittingly, Jim Hall's rhythm section at Newport is top-shelf international caliber: Scott Colley (bass) and Lewis Nash (drums). And Julian Lage, a much younger guitar phenom, joined in a cross-generational confab of guitar heroes.<br /><br />Personnel<br /><br />Jim Hall, guitar<br />Scott Colley, bass<br />Lewis Nash, drums<br />Julian Lage, guitar<br /><br />Set List Tue, 24 Jun 2014 01:00:00 +0000 46044 at http://redriverradio.org Newport Jazz Festival: Jim Hall Trio With Julian Lage Savannah Music Festival: Jerry Douglas Band http://redriverradio.org/post/savannah-music-festival-jerry-douglas-band <div><strong>Airs Thursday, June 19 at 8 p.m.&nbsp;</strong><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Jerry Douglas has received thirteen Grammy Awards, won the Country Music Association's "Musician of the Year" award three times, been awarded a National Heritage Fellowship by the National Endowment for the Arts, and was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011 by the Americana Music Association.

He now lives in New York — he met his band in school at Juilliard — and can do "modern jazz" with a metropolitan attitude. But Stay Human is named for its dedication to live music magic, which results in second-line-style parades in the subways and through the Lower East Side. It's perfect for Newport's festive ssetting — and yes, there's a tuba.<br /><br /><strong>Personnel:</strong><br /> Tue, 10 Jun 2014 01:00:00 +0000 45378 at http://redriverradio.org Newport Jazz Festival: Jon Batiste And Stay Human Live Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra 2014 http://redriverradio.org/post/pittsburgh-symphony-orchestra-2014-0 <div><strong>Airs Monday, June 9 at 11 a.m. &nbsp;</strong><span style="line-height: 1.5;">On this week's broadcast concert by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra </span>maestra<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> </span>Lorin<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> </span>Maazel<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> will lead the orchestra in the Symphony No. 7 by </span>Antonin<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> </span>Dvorak<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> and the Cello Concerto No. 2 by </span>Dmitri<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> </span>Shostakovich<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> with </span>Enrico<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> </span>Dindo<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> as the soloist.
