Piano Jazz with Marian McPartland
Sunday at 11am
In honor of Women's History Month Piano Jazz presents a session with pioneering pianist Mary Lou Williams, who would have been 103 this year. On this session from the very first Piano Jazz season Williams proves a tough nut for McPartland to crack, but warms up enough to play a duet and she even sings on "Rosa Mae." Other tunes include “Caravan,” and Williams’ "Scratchin' in the Gravel."
Latino USA with Maria Hinojosa
Sunday at 3pm
This week, Latino USA is larger than life! We start with a special two-part interview with actress Rita Moreno. Also, the life of one farm worker, now 83, who fought for her rights alongside labor leader César Chávez. We look at the legacy of Hugo Chávez, who died a year ago, and catch up on Venezuela’s current protests. The band La Santa Cecilia stands up for an undocumented bandmate. And we hear some sabiduría from “The Voice of God.”
Jazz Potpourri: Jazz á trois with Doris Spears
Sunday at 8pm
Enjoy the Jazz Duchess, herself, Ms. Doris Spears, serving you straight-ahead jazz, with a little blues around the edges.
Making Contact with Andrew Stelzer
We profile women of Greenpeace, the legendary eco-activist organization. Hettie Geenan is first mate on the Greenpeace ship, Rainbow Warrior. Leila Deen leads the campaign against fracking. And Laila Williams connect Greenpeace with indigenous communities, women s groups and people of color.
51 Percent (the Women’s Perspective) with Susan Barnett
Heroic women, tragic stories and lessons for today. History knows them as the Angels of Bataan but they can help us understand today's returning vets.
Jazz Set with Dee Dee Bridgewater
Mulgrew Miller Trio at the Kennedy Center: From Greenwood, MS, Miller (1955-2013) played piano with Mercer Ellington, Betty Carter, Art Blakey, Tony Williams. All bands sounded better with Mulgrew. As Loren Schoenberg writes, “he could levitate a bandstand.” His death in Spring 2013 is a great loss for the art form and community. This Kennedy Center set is one of his last recordings; Ivan Taylor, bass; Rodney Green, drums.
Jazz Worldwide with Michael Stone
Improvisatory sounds from around the planet.
