Join us on Saturday afternoon when Jen Hodge joins us to play some of her favourite tracks - old and new! The young bassist and singer is part of the  Company B Jazz Band and also leads her own band of all stars. She'll tell us how she got interested in older styles of jazz and about recording with equipment from the dawn of the 2oth century. The Jen Hodge All Stars are playing at Winterruption 2013 next Saturday afternoon.

Jazz in the family way!

This week on Hot Air we'll kick off BC's first ever Family Day long weekend with jazz made by....families. There's plenty of great music by artists who have more than just a professional relationship. From the Arntzens to the Jensens and the Dorsey brothers to the Marsalis clan - great musicianship is often a relative thing.

Hugh Fraser!

We're really looking forward to having Hugh Fraser in the Hot Air studio. The award-winning multi-instrumentalist, composer, band leader and teacher is as charismatic in person as he is in music. We'll channel some of his creative energy onto the airwaves this Saturday afternoon when he plays us some of his favourite tracks and tells us what he's up to now that's he's back in Vancouver.

The VEJI Reunion is at Pat's Pub on Friday, February 15 at 9:00 pm
