Professor Bop and his sometimes able assistant explore the Jurassic era of modern american music, (yes, the contradiction in terms is intentional) called Bebop. We will feature such noteworthy constituents as Bird, Diz, Monk, Fats, Klook, and Bud. Some forays into more modern jazz are possible with a smattering of Beatniks thrown in.
A show dedicated to the music of Paul Motian. Paul spent his lifetime (1931- 2011) in Jazz as a drummer, composer, sideman and band leader. Each week, the show centers around a theme such as early influences, particular compositions, a time period or his work with specific players. The show also features short readings from his autobiography, journals and interviews. Input and questions from the community are welcome.
