Musical Mentors

Most great musicians had some help along the way, in the form of a mentor. And the BC jazz scene is rich with inspiring teachers and inspired students. This week on Hot Air, we're exploring the mentor-student relationship. We'll trace the musical roots of some of the finest musicians to hail from this province.

Happy 65th Birthday!

We're celebrating a very special birthday...ours! BC's jazz show first hit the airwaves on May 23, 1947. So we've uncovered rare archival treasures and called on some special guests to help us look back on 65 years of great jazz. Plus, we'll share details about our big anniversary concert, and kick off a brand new tradition.

Jodi Proznick

In addition to being one of BC's most respected musicians, Jodi Proznick balances her busy performing and teaching career with that other thing she does...being a mom. She'll  drop by to tell us how she does it and share some of her favourite music by other jazz playing momma's.

Bob Murphy

Pianist Bob Murphy played his first gig at age 14 at the Smilin' Buddha Cabaret, back in 1959. Since then, he's shared the stage with a who's who of the Canadian jazz world, from Joani Taylor to Terry Clark to Ross Taggart. He's got some exciting new projects on the go, and he'll be here to tell us all about them, as well as share some stories from his many years on the scene.
