Jazz And Steve Williams Are Coming To UPR
UPR is partnering with KCPW to bring "Jazz Time with Steve Williams" to our statewide audience. Tune in for Jazz Time with Steve Williams Sunday evenings 6:00 to 10:00 beginning December 4.
Jazz Time with Steve Williams features live performances, interviews, commentary, history, a local jazz calendar of events, and of course music – curated by legendary radio host Steve Williams.
From ragtime to bop, from Havana to Paris to Salt Lake City, from Billie Holiday to Joe Lovano, Steve is your guide through the many varieties of jazz music – past and present.
Steve Williams has a lifelong love of jazz. His father was a horn player in New York, performing with American jazz legends Charlie Parker, Gene Krupa and Joe Venuti, among others.
