Jazz@ThePalmer - February 1, 2019


Listen to the second set.

An archive recording of the WPSU Jazz Show. This week, it’s an edition of Jazz@The Palmer recorded in October 2018 and featuring the Ryan Kauffman Quartet. 

The show is hosted and produced by WPSU’s Craig Johnson and is made possible in part by support from Fred and Judy Sears, and Friends of the Palmer. The musicians include Ryan Kauffman on saxophone, Kirk Reese on piano, Joe Michaels on bass and Chris Lozier on drums.  

The group plays original songs composed by Kauffman and by jazz greats Thelonious Monk, Frank Loesser, Julie Styne, Antonio Carlos Jobim, George & Ira Gershwin, and Arthur Schwartz. 

Craig Johnson is your local host for weekday All Things Considered. Craig makes his home in the State College area with his wife, daughter and son. He’s been involved in radio broadcasting since 1977 when he got a part-time job while still in high school at a radio station in Somerset, PA. He graduated from Juniata College in Huntingdon, PA with a BA in music. (And he can play the guitar just like ringin’ a bell)
