Upcoming Broadcasts

Jason Carroll is a contemporary smooth jazz artist and producer known for his skillful multi-instrumentalism. Many people are misled by his compositions, believing that there is a live band playing when it is astonishingly only Jason by himself. For this reason, some people have identified him as the ?Prince? of Smooth Jazz. Jason received raved reviews for his debut cd Cool and his follow-up cd, 2 Smooth. We'll talk to Jason about his new release, Let It Flow, dedicated to his mother Barbara Ann Carroll who asked him to do another smooth jazz cd before her death. Follow Jason on Twitter.
