Jazz Tonight

Monday-Thursday 8-10pm on WVTF

On Jazz Tonight, CharlieĀ  Perkinson expands on the foundation of jazz by playing a greater variety of the genre that maintains a vital link to the mainstream of the music--improvisation, swing, a groove, and a feeling of the blues.

Charlie maintains you should be able to enjoy the program whether you are a casual listener, a full-blown jazz fan or a musician. You'll hear the latest releases from the up and coming "young lions," as well as a wealth of music from the jazz greats drawing from WVTF's vast CD library and from Charlie's sizeable personal collection: "I hope the music makes you tap your foot, brings about a smile--maybe even a tear--and just makes you feel good!"
