John and the Spoonful put their first seven singles into the Top 10, an unprecedented achievement for an American band at the height of Beatlemania. At first they’d taken older…

Johnette Napolitano Bass

Johnette Napolitano

The rock critic had just vomited all over his bed. It was 3:04 a.m. on yet another early morning in 1986 in New York City and the scribe had just come off a three-day benderpalooza of self-prescribed medicines for the wounds of a break-up with a prevaricating witch.

“Jon Weber is a virtuoso, pure and simple.” Jon Weber is best known as the worthy successor to the late Marian McPartland on the NPR staple “Piano Jazz.” He’s at once an exceptional musician as well as a gifted historian and storyteller, and, above all, a true piano polymath. Playing and talking, Mr. Weber takes us through a century of history, making it crystal clear what Fats Waller, Teddy Wilson,…

Jonah Smith

Jonah Smith

New York-based singer-songwriter Jonah Smith has a little bit of everything in his show, elements of jazz, soul and country informing his heartfelt rock music. Steeped in the sounds of the blues, Smith’s sound is too unique to dismiss as kitsch or throwback. His woody, rich voice floats over the warm tones of the Fender Rhodes, evoking heartache and angst and somehow making us feel good about it. This is…
