This summer, Connecticut Jazz fans
who take in one of the many wonderful outdoor musical events in the area are likely to be
sporting WWUH 30th anniversary T-shirts.
The regions longest running jazz tradition - Paul Browns
Monday Night Bushnell Park Series - kicks off July 6 in downtown Hartford. WWUH hopes to
continue its tradition of broadcasting the concerts live, from 6-9:30 PM. The free
series is actually a year older than WWUH, adding credence to our current T-shirt motto,
"you can trust someone over 30." Maestro Brown promises a boppin
season of sounds under the stars. At presstime, it appears the show to beat will be July
27s appearance by a newly revived Mingus Dynasty ensemble.
Stay tuned to 91.3 FM for complete details, or call our Jazzline at
860-768-5267 when summer rolls around.
WWUH is also a proud media sponsor of the third annual Litchfield Jazz
Festival, slated to take place at the Goshen Fairgrounds, August 7-9. Tito Puente, John
Scofield and Stanley Turrentine are among the artists scheduled to appear this year. For
details phone, 860-567-4162.
Rest assured, youll get all the latest details regarding these
and other jazz activities by keeping you dial set at 91.3 FM or by accessing the Jazzline,
a 24-hour-a-day recorded announcement, updated every Friday. WWUH continues to be in the
forefront of Connecticut stations which provide jazz programming and information. We
broadcast jazz Monday-Friday from 9 AM - noon, Tuesday-Friday 9 PM - midnight, and Friday,
3-6 AM. Each of our announcers is given free reign to air whatever artists and music he or
she wishes, so each of our jazz programs has a distinct flavor.
In addition to offering one of the most extensive, diverse jazz blocks
in southern New England, WWUH also features more musician interviews and ticket giveaways
than any other station in the state.
Plans are currently underway to produce more jazz concerts at the
University of Hartford to benefit WWUH. The Jim Cifelli New York Nonet is tentatively
scheduled to perform on campus this fall; the group boasts two Hall High School grads -
saxist Joel Frahm and trombonist Pete McGuiness.
Also in the planning stages is a concert to feature current Hartt
School Jazz ensembles, in tandem with all-star guest alumni. If all goes as hoped, the
event will be recorded for future release on CD and cassette.
