The Law of Jazz
More Jazz—Less Talk
Saturdays at 8:00pm CT
“The Law of Jazz is an eclectic look at contemporary and historic jazz—no format—no themes—just great music. The show typically mixes jazz genres and is a reflection of my tastes in music, and my desire to deliver a listener friendly jazz format while maintaining the integrity of the music. As the show is not rigidly formatted, I also take the opportunity to present (occasional) guests, allowing a broader range of topics and uncovering musical gems.” …host Bill Law
