BET Jazz Announces September Schedule

For those of you lucky enough to get BET Jazz, they’ve announced some highlights of September’s programming, which includes a program on Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane and their recently discovered performance at Carnegie Hall and a tribute to Billie Holiday by Nnenna Freelon (pictured).

The fun begins Sept. 4 with Wynton Marsalis: Live at the House of Tribes, a personal interview and performance with the trumpeter, whose Live at the House of Tribes CD comes out Aug. 30. The live footage is from a Dec. 15, 2002 performance at the New York venue, which featured Eric Lewis on piano, Wess “Warmdaddy” Anderson on saxophone, Joe Farnsworth on drums and Kengo Nakamura on bass. The broadcast will premiere at 11:30 a.m., 7:30 p.m. and 1:30 a.m. and will also air at the same times on Sept. 18, and at 1:30 p.m., 9:30 p.m. and 2:30 a.m. on Sept. 13.
