KLOI- Gary Alexander - Classic Jazz
Sep 25, 2023
3:00 - 6:00pm
KLOI LP - 102.9
Joy Spring w/Gary Alexander

Classic Jazz and the Great American Songbook.

This Week: The first hour honors the fall Equinox with the composition titled “Equinox” by John Coltrane (born near the Equinox, September 23, 1926), then nine songs featuring Autumn or September in the title. We then move on to albums by jazz artists in our “C” box of LPs, first singing duo Jackie Cain and Roy Kral, then pianist Judy Carmichael plus alto sax/arranger Benny Carter, followed by selections from the soundtracks of seven musicals starting with “CA” -- Cabaret, Camelot, Carousel, Call Me Madam and Can-Can (with passing reference to Candide and Cats). The 5:00 hour features our continued profile of the 70-year career of Tony Bennett, now moving into the late 1990s with two selections from each of four of his albums recorded from 1995 to 1999. We close with a 30-minute tribute to the 125th birthday of George Gershwin (born September 26, 1898) as orchestrated by another “CA” artist, Matt Catingub, in his Gershwin centennial (recorded in 1998).

Tune in live:
