Daniel B

DJ at KFOI Radio 90.9 FM

Daniel B presents a show that is grounded jazz, “America’s classical music,” from the bebop of Charlie Parker and Thelonious Monk, back through the formative influences of Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald and Duke Ellington, forward into the experimental works of Miles Davis and John Coltrane, and on through to the present day with artists like Brad Mehldau and Bill Frisell. His show will also explore crossover music with jazz-influenced pop, blues, R&B and rock. He is an avid music listener, a student of the history of American music, and sometimes musician. He is a former host of NSPR’s Evening Jazz.
