Sunday Drive with Walter Venafro

Wikipedia defines a Sunday drive as “an automobile trip … taken for pleasure or leisure on a Sunday, usually in the afternoon. During the Sunday drive, there is typically no destination and no rush.”

We’ve got music for just the occasion. Sunday Drive with Walter Venafro is a musical journey with no destination and no rush — just four hours of cool, classic and contemporary jazz.
