New Jazz show: The Summit

  New Jazz Show:
The Summit, with MichaelShelton
Wednesdays at 9pm

At the midpoint of your seven-day stretch, there's a nighttime spot on the radio dial where one can take pause and unwind. It's a gathering place where those who love Jazz get an eagle's view of this nation's rich musical tradition. It's a place called THE SUMMIT.

Each meeting is a journey through the many vistas of the Jazz panorama with a healthy disdain for borders and boundaries. Whether it's the classic standards, crossover or new releases, the talking drum or the big band, the deep groove or the nether regions of the random abstract, THE SUMMIT serves as a point of departure for musical adventure. On occasion, some sets will reflect current events or moments in history, as well as tributes to the legacies of those gone before and those happening now.

Make THE SUMMIT a part of your journey every Wednesday at 9 pm by tuning in to Central Virginia's Sound Choice - 91.1 on your FM dial - or by catching the webstream, and join host MichaelShelton for an exposition of Jazz music that works you from the inside out while making you feel good about getting over the hump.
