Jazz After Hours is a late night jazz radio show hosted by Jim Wilke heard Friday and Saturday nights across the U.S. and parts of Canada since 1984. Like the last set at a jazz club, the mood is mellow but not without surprises. New and well-established jazz artists may drop in for a chat, and the music ranges from latest releases to jazz classics. There's news of tours, festivals and clubs - the best places to hear live jazz.
Jim's easy-going presentation has won the praise of jazz stars Dizzy Gillespie, Ray Brown, Max Roach, Joe Henderson, Milt Jackson, Joshua Redman, Billy Taylor, Maria Schneider, Phil Woods and many others who have been guests on Jazz After Hours.
