And Frank Zappa the man was even more complicated. Think you know Frank Zappa? Get to know him better&nbsp; this&nbsp;week on&nbsp;The New Jazz Archive.&nbsp;We’ll talk with Kevin Courier about some of the things that made the Zappa sound what it was, and take a look back at how Zappa’s early life growing up as a kid in the California desert shaped him as a man and musician. And we’ll talk with Pauline Butcher, a prim and proper British secretary who became Zappa’s unlikely personal assistant, and check in with a group of students at the School of Rock near Detroit who recently earned their musical stripes by tackling the music of Frank Zappa head on.</span></p><p><a href="http://thenewjazzarchive.com/shows/zappa.html" target="_blank">Listen to this episode.</a> Thu, 06 Mar 2014 14:24:00 +0000 Jeff Haas 11219 at http://interlochenpublicradio.org Frank Zappa Jazz Abroad http://interlochenpublicradio.org/post/jazz-abroad <p><span style="color: rgb(34, 34, 34); font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: normal; letter-spacing: normal; line-height: normal; orphans: auto; text-align: start; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; white-space: normal; widows: auto; word-spacing: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); display: inline !important; float: none;">Jazz may be an American-grown art form, but there are few places on the globe where the music hasn't found a home.&nbsp;This week on The New Jazz Archive, it’s stories and sounds from jazz’s history overseas. We’ll talk with Israeli saxophonist Anat Cohen about why Israel is becoming a hotbed for new jazz talent, and take a look at the nearly hundred-year-old history of jazz in Japan. And we’ll hear the story of how the U.S. State Department tried to use jazz as a weapon in the Cold War, and explore Europe’s version of the 1920s Jazz Age. That plus music from Josephine Baker, Danilo Perez and the three Cohens, this week on The New Jazz Archive.</span></p><p><a href="http://thenewjazzarchive.com/shows/jazz-abroad.html" target="_blank">Listen to this episode.</a> Thu, 20 Feb 2014 18:00:00 +0000 Jeff Haas 10498 at http://interlochenpublicradio.org Jazz Abroad Great Jazz Cities: Philadelphia http://interlochenpublicradio.org/post/great-jazz-cities-philadelphia <p><span style="color: rgb(34, 34, 34); font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: normal; letter-spacing: normal; line-height: normal; orphans: auto; text-align: start; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; white-space: normal; widows: auto; word-spacing: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); display: inline !important; float: none;">This week on The New Jazz Archive, we're continuing our ongoing tour of America's "Great Jazz Cities" with the stories and sounds of jazz in Philadelphia.
