No KZSU radio show happening on Friday, August 7, as I’m out of town. (All together now: “Awwwww…”)
What you will get, though, at 3:00 p.m. that day, is a two-hour presentation of Frederick Harris and Friends from the Stanford Jazz Workshop. It will be presented by DJ Fo, who commands our airwaves Friday mornings at 6:00 a.m. to present a jazz/world/blues amalgamated show.
“Join KZSU for a special broadcast of pianist Frederick Harris’s “Blastin’ Barriers” concert, recorded live at the Stanford Jazz Festival on July 20, 2009. In the first half of this 2-hour program, Harris explores the common ground between jazz and classical piano music. Then he turns to a celebration of John Coltrane, focusing on Trane’s ‘middle period.’ This special broadcast was made possible by the Stanford Jazz Workshop; the recording was was engineered by Lee Brenkman.”
Fo knows his stuff. I’d recommend listening.
