Internationally acclaimed jazz pianist Patricia Barber hosts WDCB’s three-part series “MusicHeads,” recorded in the acoustically pristine PianoForte Studios in downtown Chicago. Each show explores a different musical theme and can be used as a 3 part series or as stand alone pieces. These FREE programs are suitable for airing any time of year, but would fit nicely into Women's History or Jazz Appreciation month programming.
