Give thanks for great jazz with Freedom Jazz Dance--modern jazz from bebop to freebop and beyond--live from the beautiful campus of the University of Richmond this Sunday.

This week I will be featuring some remarkable music from the late Brazilian jazz composer Moacir Santos. A recent clipping I read about his music turned me on to this brilliant and undervalued maestro. Fortunately, his nearly six decades of work are being appreciated by a new generation of listeners today. One small article on Santos can be read at All About Jazz http://www.allaboutjazz.com/php/article.php?id=14219. I'll also be spinning selections from saxophonist Willis Jackson, bone man Roswell Rudd and a plethora of dusty platters from the Hohman Jazz Archives.

Feel free to call in at 804-289-UR90 to give your trash-or-treasure vote during my notorious Records From Aunt Ruth segment and compare jazz compositions during the FJD exclusive Two Of A Kind segment.

Visit the Freedom Jazz Dance web site today. The most recent FJD show is uploaded in its entirety with the latest Records From Aunt Ruth entry. Just double click on the radio blog file. I'd love to hear your take on new releases, cool gigs and your favorite players. Google gmail account not required for listening, but required for blogging.
