“Sunday Night Swing Set with Linda Yohn” – Sundays 7p to 9p
Veteran jazz broadcaster Linda Yohn has joined WRCJ for weekly program of swinging jazz standards. Swing is an elusive but essential jazz element. It is hard to define, but you know it when you hear it. Swing can be a sweet singer with a tasty small group, a blistering big band, a sublime piano trio, two tenor saxophones pursuing each other riff after riff, a highly syncopated Latin groove, a classic 1940s chestnut, a lusty blues-based vocalist rocking a gutsy big band, a crystalline vibraphone-based improvisation or a current elegant swing ensemble with inspirations and variations. The possibilities are endless!
This is how it happened for the final summer Sunday of 2021. We honored pianist, producer and the founder of both the Newport Jazz Festival and Festival Productions, George Wein. We had a few tunes to celebrate Jon Hendricks’ centennial birthday along Detroiter Freda Payne, born September 19th, 1942.
