The Late Set

  • The holidays are upon us, and so are the holiday tunes. Who better to join us than a pair of sublime vocalists with soulful new Christmas albums, Gregory Porter and Samara Joy?
  • What does it mean to pick a winner in jazz? We're considering that question in this episode of The Late Set — with an assist from Joshua Redman, whose career got off to a big start when he won the Thelonious Monk Jazz Saxophone Competition precisely 30 years ago.
  • On the first episode of The Late Set, hosts Greg Bryant and Nate Chinen compare notes on Philadelphia's jazz legacy and state of play — with some help from an absolute authority, pianist Orrin Evans.
  • Jazz is a conversation — and that’s what The Late Set is all about.
