Cafe Jazz

Hours: 
Friday 6:00pm to 7:00pm
Saturday 6:00pm to 7:00pm

An hour of Big Band, Bebop and Beyond, Café Jazz is a mix of original vinyl recordings with contemporary jazz releases on CD. The show is energetic, classic and classy. It is filled with lots of fulsome big band sounds, with horns that swing so hard you can almost see the suited gents moving in sync. The show also features the very best of the Bebop era and Straight Ahead jazz. It’s a feel-good program that is all about having a good time with the music.

Host and Producer Richard (Gene) Knight, has produced jazz programming since 1969, and he has amassed a mega-collection that enhances the show. Yet for all his knowledge, the Host avoids the academic approach to sharing jazz culture. He allows the music to do the talking, and adds touches of history, humor, trivia, folklore and candid commentary for the audience’s entertainment. Café Jazz is produced from the studios of AAPRC Affiliate WVAS-FM 90.7 at Alabama State University in Montgomery, Alabama.
