Riverwalk Jazz On-Air
The Jim Cullum Jazz Band Presents…
In Jazz Age Harlem, the rise of black culture produced talents like Langston Hughes and Duke Ellington. But this “Black Renaissance” wasn’t limited to men. Actress Carol Woods joins the band as they introduce the artistic, fascinating women that launched New York’s great social revolution in the 1920s.
The band takes the stage to jam with 20-somethings of vintage jazz who have embraced classic jazz and are doing much to keep the music alive.
In pre-1920 Jelly Roll Morton and King Oliver played along “Terrific Street,” known for the promise of entertainment and pleasure. Vernel Bagneris and the band tell the story as seen through the eyes of Sid LeProtti, bandleader of the So Different Jazz Band.
Bandleader and cornetist Jim Cullum talks about his early trips to New Orleans where he met first-generation jazz pioneers, including drummer Paul Barbarin and Cornetist Johnny Wiggs, and how their music influenced his life’s work.
