Morning Cup of Jazz 2/8/11
February 8, 2011. Posted by Alex Rodriguez.
Today at WBGO:
- Also featured on The Checkout: Maria Neckham and the Either/Orchestra.
- Last week's Aaron Goldberg concert at the Village Vanguard was, to put it simply, ridiculously good. Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, you can still listen to it for free. Next month, tune in for Terrell Stafford on March 8.
- Contribute to our Winter Fund Drive -- today is Match Day, which means your contribution will be worth twice as much to us as it would on any other day!
- Tonight at 7:30, Latino USA explores the connections between pro-democracy movemeents in Egypt and Latin America.
