Shades of Jazz

Fridays at 10 P.M. on 91.3 FM plus Saturdays at 11 a.m. on KUAF 3

Robert Ginsburg has been producing KUAF's jazz program, Shades of Jazz, since 1980. The program focuses on a blend of contemporary and classic jazz recordings (from Armstrong to Zawinul and Adderly to Zorn) with
features that include new releases, interviews with touring artists, in-studio performances and guest hosts from our region.

Serving as Jazz Curator for Walton Arts Center and Executive Director of the Northwest Arkansas Jazz Society, Robert brings an insider's perspective to the show with a keen ear to what's happening on the jazz scene.

On this edition of Ozarks at Large, music recorded earlier this year at KUAF during live editions of our local music shows. We hear from the band Silver Moon as they performed on The Pickin' Post with Mike Shirkey, blues guitarist Buddy Shute from his performance on the Generic Blues Show with Paul Kelso, and The Claudia Burson Trio and several friends during a live edition of Shades of Jazz with Robert Ginsburg.

The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra is coming to Walton Arts Center Sunday night for a big band holiday concert.  Wynton Marsalis explains the mission of the band.

The New York Standards Quartet will perform at 7 and 9 p.m. Friday at Walton Arts Center.

Jazz Eureka will include a performance by Ellis and Delfeayo Marsalis Saturday night.  

Four scholarship recipients play jazz inside the Firmin Garner Performance Studio as the annual Composer's Showcase approaches from the North Arkansas Jazz Society.
