Tune In For Montana Jazz And Classic Blues On MTPR

Jul 18, 2017

Montana Jazz Artists are the focus on "What I Like About Jazz" this week. Montana has a long history of great jazz players. There is a wide range of artists from players like Jack Walrath, Jim Rotondi, David Morgenroth, and Chuck Florence, to singers Dee Daniels, Eden Atwood, MJ Williams, and Jeni Fleming.

From the “Musician’s Spotlight” archives, c. March 1998, this week’s program revisits host John Floridis’ conversation with singer-songwriter Lyle Lovett before his concert at the University Theater in Missoula.

Missoula-area musicians and life partners Joan Zen and Jason Hicks discuss their longtime musical collaboration, most of whose incarnations bear Joan's name. Their most recent collection of original funk, soul and reggae is called "This Is The Fortunate Life." Zen and Hicks are John Floridis's guests this week on "Musician's Spotlight."

Virtuoso trumpeter and composer Allen Vizzutti is equally comfortable – and adept - in the jazz and classical domains. Born and raised in Missoula, his dizzying performance and teaching schedule whisks him all over the world. Vizzutti is John Floridis's guest this week on "Musician's Spotlight."
