Song of the Day 

Every day at 8:30 am, a JAZZ.FM91 host or local artist will pick out the Song of the Day and provide you with the story behind the song. And you can even host it, too!

Choose your song and tell us the story behind the song. We’ll record and broadcast your clip on a weekday at 8:30 am. You’ll get a copy of the show and a photo in our studios with you behind the microphone.

The mic is yours — ready, set, you’re on!

Current CD Incentive

Each fundraising campaign we feature a new CD from one of our favourite artists.

Currently we are offering Love Is Here to Stay by Diana Krall and Tony Bennett and Trio Tapestry by Joe Lovano.

On the collaboration Love Is Here to Stay, which was nominated for this year’s Juno Award for vocal jazz album of the year, Krall and Bennett celebrate their shared love of the music of George and Ira Gershwin. The album is a subtle, sophisticated and beautifully rendered love letter to the Gershwins’ music and their status as some of the premiere songwriters of the American popular standard. It is a masterclass in vocal delivery and phrasing, and the command of the material that Bennett and Krall display in both their duets and solo tracks makes it appear effortless, belying the honed skill of the vocalists.

The great saxophonist Joe Lovano has appeared on a number of ECM recordings over the last four decades, including much-loved albums with Paul Motian, Steve Kuhn and John Abercrombie. Trio Tapestry is his first as a leader for the label, introducing a wonderful new group and music of flowing lyricism, delicate texture, and inspired interplay. Lovano and pianist Marilyn Crispell are in accord at an advanced level inside its structures.
