Newport Jazz Festival: Dave Douglas Brass Ecstasy

Dave Douglas Brass Ecstasy

Airs Monday, September 8 at 8 p.m. It's a great idea in theory: One of the leading trumpeters, composers and public figures in jazz puts together a brass ensemble. Led by Dave Douglas, it's an even better idea in practice, bounding with enthusiasm and virtuosity. The compact-but-mighty Brass Ecstasy lit up the CareFusion Newport Jazz Festival in Newport, R.I., with a stylish, fervent update of the brass-band tradition.

Savannah Music Festival: Preservation Hall Jazz Band with the Del McCoury Band Live

Airs Thursday, August 8 at 8 p.m. On paper, it wouldn't appear that the mixture of a traditional New Orleans jazz group and a classic bluegrass band on the same stage would make for a musical extravaganza. But when the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and the Del McCoury Band decided to make a recording and follow it up with a national tour, the result was the essence of the term "Americana". In this episode, we listen to a seamless blend of soul-lifting traditional harmonies as the high and lonesome sound of the Appalachians comes together with the hot and lively jazz of New Orleans.

Savannah Music Festival: Martin Taylor

Airs Thursday, August 28 at 8 p.m. The late Chet Atkins called Martin Taylor "one of the greatest and most impressive guitar players in the world." Pat Metheny stated that Mr. Taylor "is one of the most awesome solo guitar players in the history of the instrument." Although completely self-taught, guitarist and composer Martin Taylor continues to enjoy a remarkable musical career that has already spanned five decades. In this episode, we listen to highlights from a 2013 Savannah Music Festival solo concert given by Martin Taylor, on a double-bill with guitarist Julian Lage.

Savannah Music Festival: Wynton Marsalis with Jazz at Lincoln Center

Airs Thursday, August 21 at 8 p.m. Selections from the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis' performance as part of our SMF Live concert series As the concept of a jazz orchestra approaches nearly 90 years of existence, the big bands still around and touring with their own style and identity are few and far between. One group that has persisted in sustaining an international presence, while extending and refining the tradition, continues to be lead by a man that has never backed down in his quest to clarify our American mythology through the lens of jazz. Tune in for a performance by the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis from our SMF Live concert series.

Newport Jazz Festival: Rez Abbasi Acoustic Quartet In Concert

Rez Abbasi

Airs Monday, August 18 at 8 p.m. Guitarist Rez Abbasi has spent plenty of time immersing himself in South Asian music; he also has plenty of full-on jazz chops. In his own music as a bandleader, he treads in the wide space between one and the other. Abbasi's set at the CareFusion Newport Folk Festival in Newport, R.I., features his latest band, a group that features his acoustic guitar paired with vibraphone, bass and drums.
