Pop Goes Jazz!

Our studio guest will be bassist Jodi Proznick. We've asked her to come in with jazz performed by pop artists.
There are plenty of examples going the other way - jazz artists exploring pop music (and something we explored last week on Hot Air). But there are also some fine examples of pop artists tackling jazz tunes. Joni Mitchell comes to mind. And...what about Tina Turner, Joe Jackson and Lady Gaga? Join us this Saturday when Jodi brings us her picks. Plus, we'll pay tribute to pianist Dave Brubeck who died earlier this week. We've got a excerpt from an interview he did in 1966 with Hot Air's founding host Bob Smith.
