H. Johnson exalts classical, jazz, and blues influenced group 'The Modern Jazz Quartet'

WABE host H. Johnson (WABE)

WABE’s H. Johnson has been a fixture on our station since 1978. As host of both “Blues Classics” and “Jazz Classics,” H. continually educates and entertains WABE listeners every Friday and Saturday night. H. joins “City Lights” every other Friday to share a bit from his breadth of jazz knowledge.

The segment “H. Johnson’s Jazz Moment” explores selections from the best of H.’s music collection, along with tidbits from history, personal reflections, and his thoughts on the evergreen resonance of jazz. 

In this segment, H. Johnson featured The Modern Jazz Quartet and their interpretation of classical music composer Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Air for G String.” 

“Their recordings and their interpretations and their concerts were wonderful,” H said. 

Catch H.’s Blues Classics show tonight and every Friday beginning at ten, and do return for Jazz Classics every Saturday night beginning at 8, right here on 90.1 WABE.
