Jazz Across America- Chicago

About The Program

Every weekday at 5PM (Pacific), KSDS, San Diego’s Jazz 88.3 brings the flavor of a great American Jazz city to your ears. Join us for Jazz Across America. T Chicago was the nation’s first records capital, where Louis Armstrong gained fame, Benny Goodman came up, and Lennie Tristano challenged bebop. Gene Ammons, Ramsey Lewis, the Art Ensemble of Chicago, Kurt Elling, and now Marquis Hill and Makaya McCraven—all of them shaped and spurred by the city’s mix of grit and silk. You’ll find them and more, along with new discs from across the spectrum, and unique insights gathered in a life covering jazz, with GRAMMY-winning writer/broadcaster Neil Tesser.
