'The Beat' is a weekly mix of jazz, blues and much more. Each week, host David Nicholas plays selections from WCMU's extensive record and CD library, and brings in some of his own favorite albums from home.
Join David Nicholas for The Beat from noon-3...brand new music from Roni Ben-Hur and Woodwired plus the latest from Brad Mehldau, Manhattan Transfer and Mike LeDonne...and looking back to the innovated 1957 date "Interplay for 2 Trumpets and 2 Tenors"
This week on The Beat, new music from Bill Anschell, Ben Markley and Bongwool Lee plus classics from Herbie Mann and The Crusaders. And a Memorial Day remembrance from The Mills Brothers, The Andrews Sisters and Glenn Miller!
This week from noon to 3 on The Beat, small group and swing from Bechet and Basie plus two features -- Randy Weston's 1989 "Portraits" recordings and from this week in '58, Kenny Burrell's "Blue Lights".
