Jazz Memorial Day Weekend: Double Takes!
Everybody has one or two favorite jazz standards, knowing them best as vocals, instrumentals, or even as big band arrangements. So, all Memorial Day Weekend, WRTI will explore the great renditions of jazz standards. Celebrate the unofficial start of summer by doing a "Double Take" with WRTI. At the top and bottom of every hour we'll play both an instrumental and a vocal version of a well-known standard.
You'll hear all of your favorites, like "Body and Soul," "Take Five," "Misty," and "Afro Blue," in two different ways all weekend long. Expect to hear plenty of Miles along the way, too, as we continue celebrating the 90th anniversary of his birth, since there are quite a few vocal versions of Miles' songs.
Our "Double Take Weekend" will help you get the grill fired up and the good times rolling. Join us!
