We’ve got great Pittsburgh Jazz to Celebrate for Fall 2018!

We have a great collection of thank you gifts for the fall - including new CDs from Tony Campbell and Frank Cunimondo, a classic release from Eddie Jefferson, Slide Hampton and Richie Cole, plus an amazing big band project from Sammy Nestico, the arranger and composer behind so much great music from Sinatra and Count Basie.

This has been an exciting year of programming and partnership as we build a stronger community around jazz and public radio. Support the sounds and the service with your donation, now! Call 412-322-1800 or click on the “donate” button.
