My good friend Ben Palmer is a well known musician in the Triangle, playing many gigs on upright bass, electric guitar, and acoustic guitar. Now he's a media mogul too, as host of a weekly show on Hillsborough's WHUP-FM 104.7. Every Thursday from 1-4 PM he presents "Live Jazz Now!", which features him in performance and in conversation with the area's best musicians. Pianist Glenn Mehrbach and I will be his guests on Thursday June 2nd. We'll talk about our decade-long collaboration, the music we love, the music we've composed, and of course we'll be swinging with Ben and performing some great standards. Do tune in!
If you can't listen live, you can stream the broadcast on your computer, and it's available in the WHUP archives after the broadcast is over. Just go to whupfm.org/show/live-jazz-now/ to listen.
I'd love to know if you have any favorites you'd like to hear while we're "on air". Just drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org with your request!
