The Jazz Show features a wide variety of jazz artists and styles past and present – with special emphasis on new releases, independent labels, local artists, and avant-garde/experimental jazz & free improvisation. Our definition of jazz spills over into creative contemporary composition, electronic music, world music, blues, rock, soul, and funk.
We regularly broadcast interviews and live performances by local and visiting musicians. Daily “11:00 breaks” provide in-depth focus on individual albums, artists, or themes. We also give away tickets to many events in the Chicago jazz community.
