Your host, veteran jazz broadcaster, Mark Chilla, presents a weekly exploration of jazz AND American popular song, organized by a historical topic or a lyrical theme.

  • From a traditional blessing to a children's dance, hear a violin address the African diaspora — and a trumpet tell a bedtime story.
  • Formell performs epic music and poetry, magical and real, about the Afro-Caribbean experience.
  • Two unique emerging artists step out at the Litchfield Jazz Festival, the climax of a three-week jazz camp in Kent, Conn. Hear Gabriel Alegria's Afro-Peruvian jazz sextet and Gerald Clayton's piano trio in concert.
