Riverwalk Jazz On-Air
The Jim Cullum Jazz Band Presents…
They call New Orleans ‘the Cradle of Jazz.’ And as the saying goes, “The hand that rocks the cradle, rocks the nation.” The Jim Cullum Jazz Band presents traditional hot jazz honoring the music and musicians of New Orleans.
Guests John Pizzarelli, Becky Kilgore, Vernel Bagneris and Nina Ferro shine on love songs from sweet to snappy. It’s our special Valentine’s card to you!
Jim and the Band serve up more New Orleans hot jazz classics along with the Smithsonian’s archival recordings of Crescent City legend Danny Barker sharing childhood memories and his life in music.
Heartbreakers, man-takers, vamps, tramps and the girl next door have all shown up in song. New Orleans’ Topsy Chapman joins Jim Cullum to separate the ‘sophisticated ladies’ from the ‘red-hot mommas.’
Note: Radio broadcast listings do not reflect live appearances by the Jim Cullum Jazz Band. You can find the JCJB concert calendar here.

Thinking Of Danny Barker
November 16, 2010 by Doug Ramsey
This is neither the anniversary of Danny Barker’s birth (January 13, 1909) nor of his death (March 13, 1994). I need no special occasion to write about Danny. He was born in New Orleans, where I served with him on the board of the original New Orleans JazzFest and was lucky enough to become his friend. No one has ever had a warmer, more genuine companion.
