Jazz on the Beach is a show that can best be described as "straight ahead" or "mainstream", which means a combination of traditional, small group or big band swing, be-bop ,west coast, etc. It plays some current, or reissued recordings, some broadcast jazz shows of long ago, and some vocals. You might ask "does it swing?" Host Jack Simpson always hopes so!! Jazz on the Beach plays every Thursday night from 7 to 10 p.m.
