Hello Beautiful Jazz People!

Once again back on the air at 89.9 FM KCRW.COM sitting in for Bo Leibowitz spinning a menagerie of sonic brilliance by many unsung heroes of the music!

KCRW

Click Picture above for 3 fantastic hours of JAZZ!!!!

It is an intentional, mental foray into brain, body and sound; spontaneously crafted from organic creativity leading you down the black hole of euphoric ponder. An experience, not just songs played on the radio. What does it all mean? I won’t even know until after the nebulous sonnet has concluded.
