Blog Name: Home Page NewsAuthor: San Diego's Jazz 88.3 Posted on: September 3, 2014
Daniel Jackson was a first rate composer, saxophonist, pianist, educator and mentor. His passion for the music and the energy it creates was unmatched. Born in La Jolla and graduated from San Diego High School, he was the epitome of San Diego Jazz. A staple. Daniel's collaborations and relationships with legends like Lenny McBrowne, Art Farmer, The Adderley brothers, Jimmy Smith, to San Diego's own- Marshall Hawkins, Charles McPherson and Gilbert Castellanos is a testament to his gift of expression. He will be cherished always. More Resources and Remembrances on the Jazz 88 Blog...
San Diego Blues Festival
Blog Name: Home Page NewsAuthor: San Diego's Jazz 88.3 Posted on: September 2, 2014
Jazz 88.3 will be hanging out at the San Diego Blues Festival, a benefit for the Jacobs and Cushman San Diego Food Bank, Today (Sunday) at the Embarcadero Marina Park North. This year, come out and groove to 18-acts, including Eric Burdon & the Animals, Elvin Bishop, Tommy Castro & the Painkilllers, Blues Hall of Famer, Lazy Lester and more. In San Diego County, 462,000 people live in poverty and face “food insecurity” which means that little or no food is available at home and they often will not know where they will get their next meal. With that being said, the mission of the San Diego Blues Festival is to provide great blues music at an affordable price and raise money to support the battle against hunger in our community. So come out and hang out for a good cause! We'll see you there!

    Three Day Weekend! Award Winning Jazz Radio! Large Ensembles Set On Stun!
    • I might be persnickety when it comes to Personal Inclinations In Music Selection but it was a full-on throw-down program of large groups, ensembles, big bands, and like that. On the one hand there was no Sun Ra or 8 Bold Souls or Creative Orchestra Music. On the other, Secret Society and New York Hieroglyphics and Box Canyon Overview. "It's all about texture" said Jared Gold after slaying us at Oliver Lake some years back.
    • Lester Bowie. Enough said. Well, okay...Julius Hemphill, too. Very High Level.
    • Sam Rivers swang at the conclusion and really wrapped it up.
    Thanks for listening
