Jeri Spurling is the co-host of The Jazz Scene, Monday nights from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, alternating weeks with her co-host, William Ryan.  On the program she loosely follows a musical arc that begins with jazz selections that she refers to as “upbeat and peppy,” then on to calmer tempos around dinnertime, and finishing off with “edgier, funky, or raucous jazz to blend towards the blues at 8:00.”  Jeri aims for the show to have continuity and occassionally there will a theme, but she says that “the ear trumps all requirements.  It has to flow and sound good.” Read more »
