Christian McBride

Jazz Night in America is the next generation of jazz programming from NPR Music, WBGO, Jazz at Lincoln Center and clubs across America. This multi-platform show is hosted by Christian McBride, a multiple Grammy award-winning musician. The program features storytelling with concert performances, connecting jazz enthusiasts and potential new fans with artists and venues — and each other — through weekly, one-hour broadcasts and an array of 26 live signature videocasts and on-demand video of jazz events from today's great artists and venues.

Marian McPartland

For more than 30 years, Marian McPartland brought us illuminating visits with artists from the jazz world and beyond. These hours of music and conversation form a rich broadcast legacy only Marian could have created. It's an invaluable archive we sample from every Saturday evening on WUSF, your NPR station.
