Tune into WNCU.org or set your radio station to 90.7 (WNCU) in you're in the proximity of Durham, NC on Wednesday!  Eagle Jazz is a weekly collaboration with the Jazz Studies program at North Carolina Central University and our world class Jazz radio station WNCU.  I will come and spend some quality time with Ben and pull music from his "Treasure Trove" of new Jazz music on the scene.

We always have a good time listening and learning about new and classic recordings.  Be sure to let us know you're listening.
