SMOOTH JAZZ CLASSICS™ features the music of George Benson, David Sanborn, Chuck Mangione, Kenny G, Al Jarreau, Grover Washington Jr, Sade, Herb Alpert, Spyro Gyra and the artists who were there when the smooth jazz revolution happened in the 1980’s.
SMOOTH JAZZ CLASSICS™ was created by host Allen Kepler in 2021, as a way to look back at, and enjoy an era of music that included some of the top selling, award winning artists of the 80’s and 90’s. The show is designed for the core smooth jazz fans, who numbered in the millions in the 80’s 90’s and 00’s, as well as a younger audience who may not be familiar with much of the genre’s originators.
Each week, the SMOOTH JAZZ CLASSICS™ features a blend of music reminiscent of what fans might have heard on stations like WNUA Chicago, KTWV Los Angeles, KKSF San Francisco, WQCD New York City, KIFM San Diego, KOAI Dallas, WJZW Washington DC, WVMV Detroit, WLVE Miami, WNWV Cleveland, KYOT Phoenix, KWJZ Seattle and other legendary radio stations, who show creator Allen Kepler worked with or consulted.
You can catch the SMOOTH JAZZ CLASSICS™ on the Smooth Jazz Network®’s stream on iHeart Radio and LIVE365 at 2PM eastern time both Saturday and Sunday, as well as at various times on over 25 radio stations and streams worldwide. Listen to the stream here.
