Archives….Christmas, Winter, and Holiday Jazz

Hello.   I’m taking a break from Discovering Jazz programs for a few weeks—but I’ll see you in 2019.

If you want something to tide you over until the next program, give my last year’s holiday special a listen.  It was Episode 14.

You’ll hear music for Christmas, for non-specified winter holidays, New years, Ramadan, Hannukah (Channukah), and one you’ve probably never heard of—-Chalica.

Music by the likes of Charlie Parker, Bill Evans, Ella Fitzgerald, John Eidsvoog, Shuffle Demons, former Peterborough resident Wesley Collett-Taylor, Bob Dorough with Miles Davis, The Cairo Jazz Band, Kenny Ellis, Dexter Gordon, Barbra Lica, Mike Rud, Ahmad Jamal, and The Darylectones (from Penticton, B.C.).

I also talk a bit about the chord that makes songs sound ‘Christmasy”.
