Marty Friedman

Jazz Host

Sunday Jazz Brunch, 8am-12pm, Sunday

Born in the Bronx, New York, Marty Friedman has loved jazz since he was 17. "I was at the New York Public Library looking through the LPs, realizing that I had already borrowed all the rock albums of interest. So I decided to branch out. That's when I saw a two-LP set on Prestige called 'The Hawk Flies.' It had a really cool picture on the cover, but it was the Bean's music that really grabbed me." In college at the City University of New York, Marty ran the arts department at the school newspaper, and was able to meet and interview various jazz musicians and record producers in the New York area. Today, as an amateur guitarist, Marty jams with friends at parties and the occasional informal gig. "Doing the Sunday Jazz Brunch is a real thrill because it keeps me current with the latest releases and allows me to share my passion for music with the listeners."
