Patrick Wolff has been a professional jazz musician for 20 years, and he takes great pleasure in exploring the endless avenues and narrow alleys through the world of jazz. There's a wealth of classic sounds out there, and new music being made every day, but it can be daunting to stay in the loop! So each segment, he'll focus in on the work of one single artist who deserves your attention. It might be a fresh face turning ears in a distant land, it might be a forgotten master buried in the stacks of LP's, or it might end up being the cat playing at that place around the corner from your house. He'll play all of it- the abstract, the swinging, the outrageous and the courageous. Tune in, take a deep breath and get ready for some of the most stimulating and creative sounds in jazz.
