Noah Baerman is guest on Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz program on Sunday, March 6th at 7:00 p.m.
Pianist and educator Baerman is a remarkable young player. Though battling Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, a rare disease of the connective tissue, he continues to put his energy into jazz education, with several teaching jobs and eight successful books about jazz. Baerman joins McPartland for "There is No Greater Love," and "Black Orpheus."
Jimmy Smith's music is on Jazz On The Side at noon on Sunday, Feb. 27
Jazz On The Side at noon brings in "Heroes of the Hammond." In the '50s Jimmy Smith combined blues, bebop and the B-3 organ to create a new type of earthy jazz. The show highlights equally great music made by less famous organists like Shirley Scott, Big John Patton, Baby-Face Willett, Don Patterson, Larry Young, and Charles Earland.
