Schulman Auditorium with a celebration of Jazz Appreciation Month with San Diego's 2011 Thelonious Monk International Piano Competition Finalist Joshua White and his Quartet and Jazz 88.3 host Vince Outlaw present "San Diego Jazz Legends and Young Lions".|
San Diego Jazz has both a rich history and a currently thriving, invigorating and nationally recognized scene, or as San Diego Magazine recently characterized, “the renaissance of West Coast Jazz is happening right here and now." We'll introduce and explore the artists, venues, organizations, media outlets, both past, present, and emerging while hearing music from one of the top Jazz Quartets led by pianist Joshua White, who none other than Herbie Hancock described as a "cutting-edge innovator".

April 7, 2015 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of one of the most influential Jazz artists in the history of the music, Billie Holiday. The impact of her music is something that Jazz 88.3 on-air hosts try to communicate when they individually hand-program their daily and weekly shows...As Jazz 88.3's Sue Palmer says,
"What a force Billie was!!!"
To mark the occasion, some of the on-air hosts at Jazz 88.3 have contributed thoughts and some of the digital resources they use when individually programming their music shows for their Jazz 88.3 listeners and supporters.
Jazz 88.3 hosts today will be remembering Lady Day by sharing the great music she has made and influenced with you, so please LISTEN LIVE
by radio, cable, computer, smartphone wherever you may be.
