A Tour of the American Songbook with Jane Monheit, April 2011

    This program features the talented Jane Monheit and her quartet – with numbers from the Great American songbook and Latin Jazz. In our education segment, Building Blocks of Jazz, we listen as Phil Dunlap defines and discusses harmony and how it adds flavor to rhythm & melody. From Don Wolff’s archives, our Jazz Gem features a rare performance with Ruby Braff and Ralph Sutton. Jazz Violinist Regina Carter visits St. Louis Children’s Hospital to lift spirits with music. You’ll meet our “Rising Stars of Jazz” from Webster Groves HS – Joseph Weinstein-Hibbs & Sam Freund. And JazzReach comes to town to give young students a lesson in live jazz performance, history, and culture.
