Hamilton Live

Video Hamilton Live: Paquito D'Rivera

He is celebrated both for his artistry in Latin jazz and his achievements as a classical composer. His music reflects a dedication and enthusiasm for jazz, bebop, and Latin music but his contributions to classical music are impressive. He is a winner of 12 Grammy Awards. His latest project, “Jazz Meets the Classics” was released this month.

Beyond Category

Video Beyond Category: Craig Handy and 2nd Line Smith

Saxophonist Craig Handy made his name as a “young lion” of jazz playing with artists such as Herbie Hancock and Dee Dee Bridgewater. He has an exciting new band called 2nd Line Smith, which combines the organ-jazz repertoire of Jimmy Smith with the “second line” rhythms of New Orleans parade music.

Border Crossings

Video Border Crossings: Irene Diaz

Los Angeles singer-songwriter Irene Diaz has a modern pop take on the jazz torch-song tradition. She sat down with Larry London to perform and talk about her music.

Soul Lounge

Video Soul Lounge: Water Seed

New Orleans based group, Water Seed joins Shawna Renee inside the Soul Lounge where they introduce listeners to their latest album, a wonderful fusion of Jazz, Soul and Rhythm & Blues. They’ll also explain how the heart of New Orleans influences each of them as musicians and songwriters.
