DJS Jazz Spotlite Featuring James Dapogny's Chicago Jazz Band
Pianist/Composer/Author James Dapogny is the current featured artist on the DJS Jazz Spotlite Channel. Jim needs little introduction in the jazz world. Professor of Music at the University of Michigan for over 40 years, he has led his Grammy-nominated Chicago Jazz Band for over 31 years, touring across North America and releasing numerous acclaimed records and C.D.s, including a project backing up the legendary Maria Muldaur in an album of early blues classics.
This Spotlite is sponsored by the Detroit International Jazz Festival. For 28 years, the Detroit International Jazz Festival has attracted visitors and locals to an end of summer ritual on Labor Day Weekend that celebrates one of America's most important art forms. The festival boasts 6 stages and 100 acts over four days in a city well known for its musical legacy. Now under new ownership and with a new brand, Detroit International Jazz Festival has re-established itself as one of the largest and best free jazz festivals in the world.
