Jazz radio station gets Bluesy and Rootsy tonight

Fauth & Gladstone


It may call itself JazzFM, but the station at 91.1 on the FM dial is a pretty diverse mix of various musical styles that, when you jumble them all together, like a soup or salad, end up making something unique that, I suppose, is indeed like Jazz itself: a freeform mixture of diverse elements.

Tonight’s programming on two of the station’s regularly featured weekly shows (Jaymz Bee from 6-8 and Danny Marks from 10-11) demonstrates that variety by including interviews with two local masters of also inter-related but distinct genres: Julian Fauth and Brian Gladstone.

Fauth, who won a Juno for Blues Album of The Year a few years ago, will perform live on the station’s in-house piano during Bee’s program to promote an upcoming Electro-Fi Records showcase, when he will perform his latest Everybody Ought To Treat A Stranger Right album live, at TO’s Jazz Bistro on February 10. You can listen to him play and talk about the record tonight at:  https://www.jazz.fm/index.php/on-air-mainmenu/hosts-mainmenu-55/75-jaymz-bee

Gladstone, founder and executive director of the Winterfolk Blues & Roots Festival, will appear with Marks to promote next weekend’s 13th installment of the 3-day multi-venue extravaganza. They’ll spin tracks by many of the festival’s featured artists including Jack de Keyzer, David Essig, HOTCHA! and more. Tune in at:  http://www.jazz.fm/player/
