This is where I normally post the list of new jazz releases that I played last night on Saturday Night Jazz. However, the server that kmhd.org resides on was down most of the day yesterday and so I wasn’t able to post the entire playlist there the way I normally do. So this list is going to be the whole shebang, with new releases indicated by “[NEW RELEASE]” appearing after the label name. This is the same convention I used to indicate new releases when we were using MHCC’s playlist program, so it should look familiar to you if you’ve been listening for a while.
We’re in the middle of our fall membership drive, and I want to thank everyone who called KMHD’s special toll-free member hotline during my show and made a contribution! You folks are great!
KMHD’s web site was down most of the day yesterday, server issues, but it’s back up and running today. If you live outside the USA and would like to make a contribution to help keep KMHD on the air, please go to kmhd.org and click the “CONTRIBUTE NOW” icon! 🙂 (And if you want to mention Saturday Night Jazz in the comments section, that would be nice too. Heh.)

About the show:
Saturday Night Jazz is a three hour program of REAL jazz music (and a little blues too) broadcast on 89.1 FM, KMHD and streamed live on the web at kmhd.org. Every hour I play 20 to 25 minutes of new jazz releases, beginning at approximately 22 minutes into the hour. The rest of each hour is devoted to bringing you the best older jazz… “older” in this case meaning anything that is no longer “new”. One minute you might hear David Sanborn from last year’s hit CD “Here And Gone”; the next minute you might hear a classic Coltrane track from the 1950’s. I play mostly up-beat instrumental music insterspersed with a few vocals. Saturday night is for feeling good and having fun, and Saturday Night Jazz strives to present the kind of music that will help you achieve that.
What you will NOT hear on Saturday Night Jazz (or on any KMHD programming) is so-called “smooth jazz”. Pretty much anything else is fair game though!
To see my complete playlist for last night’s show, or any previous show, for that matter, head on over to kmhd.org and click on the “Playlists” link.
Jazz Radio 89.1 FM KMHD was founded in 1984 on the campus of Mount Hood Community College in Gresham, Oregon. MHCC still owns the FCC license, but since August 10, 2009 the station has operated under a partnership between the college and Oregon Public Broadcasting (OPB). An all volunteer on-air staff of nearly 40 jazz and blues lovers present the music, supported by the highly professional staff of OPB.
KMHD is the ONLY full time jazz and blues station in the Portland metropolitan area. Besides being available in a large area of northwest Oregon and southwest Washington at 89.1 FM on the radio dial, KMHD also streams live on the Internet 24/7 at kmhd.org.
THANK YOU for your support, and for listening to Saturday Night Jazz on KMHD!
