WUSF, 89.7 has a decades-long tradition of bringing you the best in jazz all night, every night. Our knowledgeable and personable hosts -- Bob Seymour, Mike Cornette, Whitney James, Mark Feinman, and Richard Jimenez -- present the jazz classics along with the best new releases every hour, all night long. We hope you’ll check out our playlist here on the WUSF website, and appreciate your joining us as often as you can for America’s music – jazz – in the late night and early morning hours.
We’ll swing into spring this Saturday with some songs for the season, and we’ll look forward to hearing from YOU, during our Spring Membership Campaign. Bob Seymour and Mike Cornette bring you the music, which also includes a feature on drummer Roy Haynes’ 90th birthday shows last week and lots more. Get WUSF and All Night Jazz off to a big start, on our Spring Campaign’s Opening Night!
It’s a very special edition of our newest show, Jazz Night in America, with live performances and the stories behind the music. And it’s your chance to support All Night Jazz on WUSF! Christian McBride brings us Reimagining Dave Brubeck, with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra; a sample of a new suite by MacArthur Fellow, saxophonist Miguel Zenon; and great moments from a concert celebrating 75 years of Blue Note Records, this Saturday evening.
Last March 20, on what would have been her 96th birthday, the Piano Jazz family gathered in New York for 'Remembering Marian.' Hosted by Jon Weber, guests included Tony Bennett, Barbara Carroll, Bill Charlap, and Michael Feinstein. We remember Marian McPartland with a broadcast of this special program, this Sunday night at 8.

This multi-platform show is hosted by Christian McBride, a multiple Grammy award-winning musician.

For more than 30 years, Marian McPartland brought us illuminating visits with artists from the jazz world and beyond.
