Saturday Jazz

Presented by: Gabriel Fatin Warren Kimble Helen Matthews Dick Hurn

9am-11am Saturdays

The best of Jazz from earliest recordings to present-day sounds. The most rounded  program of the genre on Perth’s airwaves, brings you styles as diverse as new orleans, dixieland, swing, be-bop, hard-bop, post-bop, west coast, cool, latin, vocal, small group, big-band, and lots in between. Hear how the music grew from blues and ragtime; travelled through the jazz age; the swing era. Learn of the cradles of jazz; the Crescent City and Chicago; the crucible of Kansas City;

the ultimate destination of New York; then the rise of Los Angeles; the way that the musical joy spread around the world; and how the innovators took it in new directions. Naturally, each Presenter has a slightly different perspective on the music they love—thus the overall content varies from week to week, with many local W A and Australian artists featured—all emanating from a straight-ahead base. So, get your jazz fix here every Saturday Morning of the year
