What do Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Claudia Schmidt, Thelonious Monk, Eric Clapton, Charles Mingus, Ron Getz and Duke Ellington have in common? Find out on The New Jazz Archive with acclaimed Michigan jazz composer, musician and educator Jeff Haas. Each week, Jeff artfully blends music and storytelling as he explores jazz and its ties to other traditions including rock-n-roll, the blues, soul, world and classical music. Think "radio version of the best liner notes collection ever compiled" ... with an engaging and sometimes edgy soundtrack to back it up.
The concept for The New Jazz Archive was inspired by Duke Ellington's philosophy: When asked to define jazz, the Duke responded, "as long as it's good music there is no need for definitions or categories - it's all music."
