Originally I wanted to type this as the show was underway. Capture the action. Feel the vibe. Apparently I was ignoring what I've learned over the last decades of this endeavor...the scene changes and you are at its mercy. And it has none.
  • Saturday morning, Cowles Mtn early, international break so no compelling distraction, typing now.
  • San Diego lost a local legend when Daniel Jackson passed away. He helped many musicians in many ways over the years. read more
  • Confirmed but not yet announced, yours truly will permanently fill the Friday night Progressive Nights chair, 10pm - midnight, begininning September 19th. Thursday nights unchanged except for slight adjustments in the Index of Possibilities because there should be some separation.
Thanks for listening

His 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.

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!
