In conjunction with our music, books, and youth programming, we specialize in hip hop and jazz curation and archiving! Earth established Jazzy Peoples in 2011, airing on WJZP Jazz Portland, that inspired the name. We recently received our invitation to air, Jazz On Lemont, at Lemont Hall in Brunswick, Maine. Featuring a 75 minute performance and behind the scenes interviews, the event would air on WJZP, be provided to public radio and public TV for consideration, and published on our own platform. We are requesting sponsors to cover airfare, lodging, car rentals, recording, filming, and editing, and in exchange — we will acknowledge sponsors in the introduction and final credits of each sponsored program! Jazzy Peoples is not limited to Jazz On Lemont. We’re now accepting invitations to cover The 50th Anniversary of Hip Hop! The Jazz Flower, first airing on April 16th, 2021, is rooted in the 1960’s era of jazz, and soul music. Selections range from Hard Bop, to Latin Jazz, Ethiopian Jazz, Cape Jazz, Afro-Beat, Contemporary Jazz, Soul, Women In Jazz, Tributes, Big Band and Swing, etc. Some of our aesthetic influences include Rakim, De La Soul, The Wu-Tang Clan, Gang Starr, and A Tribe Called Quest. Our growing studio record archive includes Shirley Scott, Milt Jackson, Horace Silver, Max Roach, Lou Donaldson, Lonnie Smith, Dizzy Gillespie and more!
The Jazz Flower is currently only available on our seven Maine Public Classical stations and online stream, during our Friday night broadcast. Our Playlist Archive is Here. We stream on our subdomain, Friday 6-8 PM EST. www.jazzflower.mainepublic.org
