"Influencing how listeners feel is a responsibility I don't take lightly. The blend of jazz we curate provides a magical, almost hypnotic mood. Laid-back and therapeutic, it's a musical journey we'll enjoy together every weeknight."
Presented without commercials, Jazz Tonight delivers a rich and elegant tapestry of jazz spanning seven decades. From icons like Ellington, Ella, Monk and Miles to today’s luminaries such as Wynton Marsalis, Joshua Redman, Brad Mehldau and Diana Krall, you’ll feel calmed by Jazz Tonight's lush and artful audio environment. We’re here to take you on a laid-back journey fueled by the greatest jazz recordings the world has to offer.
You're in good hands with the host of Jazz Tonight, acclaimed media personality Ray White. Ray grew up around jazz when his father played artists like Ahmad Jamal and Abbey Lincoln and he went on to work in a jazz record shop in Hartford, Connecticut followed by a career hosting shows at some of the top radio stations in New York and San Francisco. A warm, easy-going musicologist, Ray White provides just the right amount of insight and color to make the music-intensive Jazz Tonight program an ideal soundtrack for dinner parties, a romantic evening, studying or reading your new favorite novel.
Set the mood weeknights from 7 PM to Midnight (ET/PT) with Ray White’s Jazz Tonight exclusively on The Jazz Groove.
