Host: Drew Sheckler
A whirlwind of jazz, blues, jazz-rock, fusion and fun. You may not always see it coming, but you’ll love it when it arrives!
Jazzmatazz will entertain you with its unexpected mix of new and old artists. Up tempo Jazz from the classic greats and the new giants, with an emphasis on Bebop, Hard Bop, Fusion, irreverent vocalists and a few musical surprises mixed in. You will not be crooned to sleep on Drew’s show! Jazzmatazz is so cool, it even stops the other hard-bitten WHCP program hosts in their tracks. Prepare to be challenged!
Drew explains: “Art Blakely. It was 1975 and a freshman in college. I had been listening to the fusion jazz in my high school years, and then took a course titled “The History of Jazz.” I heard Hard Bop, courtesy of Art Blakely, for the first time and I was sold! I became a student of Jazz for life! Fusion, Bop, Acid Jazz, Jazz Pop – it’s all a part of Jazzmatazzz.”
