BET on Jazz to Release Jazz CD Collection

In case you can’t get enough of BET on Jazz’s 24-hour-a-day jazz programming, the cable station is offering an 11-CD collection to keep you in the BET on Jazz spirit when you are away from your TV. Collectively titled BET on Jazz: For Many Moods, the new CDs will be released in installments throughout the summer. Issued by Madacy Entertainment Group, each CD will have a theme, such as After Hours, Hot Summer Nights and Sunday Mornings. Distribution of the series begins May 15 with CDs that feature artists like Sonny Rollins, Roy Hargrove, Gil Evans, Tito Puente, and Danilo Perez.

A television program, “Jazz Music for Many Moods,” will be filmed at Blues Alley in Washington, D.C. and aired on BET on Jazz in conjunction with the CD series’ release.
