Tune in to WRTI between now and January 1st as we sprinkle in your favorite seasonal jazz to accompany our regular programming.

We're bringing you plenty of amazing new holiday releases, including music from Etienne Charles, Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band, The Count Basie Orchestra and Ann Hampton Callaway, among many others.

And, of course, you'll hear the classic tunes that have accompanied your holiday season for years – great jazz from Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Duke Pearson, and the rest of the usual suspects.

Christmas Eve and Christmas Day will feature all holiday music -  the perfect soundtrack to your dinners and gatherings!

At 9 pm on Christmas Eve we'll feature A Swinging Holiday Jazz Party With Wynton Marsalis, a delightful hour-long special hosted by Mr. Marsalis himself.  You'll hear all of Wynton’s favorite holiday tunes - be sure to tune in to party with Wynton, and WRTI!

On Christmas night, Jeff Duperon brings you his favorite seasonal jazz tunes starting at 6 pm.  

Let’s count down to 2016 by counting down your favorite new jazz releases of 2015!  Join us from 9 PM until midnight, starting on December 28th to review the year’s top new releases as voted by YOU.  The countdown will be winding down just as the ball drops, so you can ring in the New Year knowing who de-throned last year’s #1, Pete Smyser.
