  • Taking The Tuba Above And Beyond The Low End
    The tuba was the first bass instrument in jazz, until it was replaced by the string bass. For nearly 50 years, Bob Stewart has been trying to carve out a new niche for his instrument in modern jazz.
  • Makoto Ozoné On Piano Jazz
    The pianist solos in his original "Lullaby for Rabbit," host Marian McPartland performs a "Portrait of Makoto Ozoné," and together they enjoy musical jokes in Sonny Rollins' "Sonnymoon for Two."
  • 'Miles Davis And Gil Evans: Still Ahead' On JazzSet
    In three collaborations in the late 1950s, Gil Evans and Miles Davis steered their projects into a new era for jazz. Terence Blanchard plays Davis' role with commitment and emotion in this set.
  • The Private Eye Who Made Cool Jazz His Calling Card
    The late-'50s detective series Peter Gunn was popular, but Henry Mancini's music for it became iconic. NPR's Linda Wertheimer finds out what makes the jazzy score so indelible.
  • Christian McBride On Piano Jazz
    On this program from 2001, the bassist takes center stage to discuss his favorite gigs and jam with host Marian McPartland in "Billie's Bounce" and "Midnight Sun."
