WUSF Jazz Programs

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.

Host Bob Seymour brings you great jazz music that you will not find anywhere else on the radio dial. Saturday nights at 9:00 PM, you are invited to take a journey into jazz!

Jazz at Lincoln Center presents concerts that can be heard nowhere else. From the Allen Room, Rose Hall, and the Kaplan Penthouse at Lincoln Center, all created specifically for jazz, and from Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, this Peabody Award-winning program brings us thematic programs with the world’s great performers. A number of times each year, these programs feature the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, led by the Center’s Artistic Director, Wynton Marsalis.

JazzSet is the jazz lover’s eyes and ears on the world of live music. The Grammy and Tony Award winning vocalist Dee Dee Bridgewater takes listeners to stages coast to coast and beyond, to capture the finest performers as they make magic happen. From intimate jazz clubs to the biggest festivals, JazzSet is there, every week of the year.

Marian McPartland

For more than 30 years, Marian McPartland brought us illuminating visits with artists from the jazz world and beyond. These hours of music and conversation form a rich broadcast legacy only Marian could have created. It's an invaluable archive we sample from every Saturday evening on WUSF, your NPR station.
