“Monday Night and All that Jazz” with MVY Radio’s Dave Kish
Monday, May 21 at 7:00pm, the West Tisbury Library and WMVY present our monthly jazz-themed evening with Dave Kish. Dave will present a film about Kansas City jazz starring Count Basie’s Orchestra, Big Joe Turner, and Jay McShann. Refreshments served. Free and open to the public.
Dave has hosted the WMVY radio show “Sunday Morning & All That Jazz” since the spring of 1997, and has always been a champion of all types of jazz, old and new, from all parts of the globe. Always willing to take chances, Dave has greatly expanded his range to include extensive features on jazz vocalists, Bossa Nova, African funk, vintage soul, Latin and European jazz, among many other types of improvised music. A summer resident of the Vineyard since the late sixties, Dave settled here in 1989. He wrote music reviews for the Martha’s Vineyard Times for many years, and hosted a weekly Sunday afternoon jazz jam at the Wintertide Coffeehouse in Vineyard Haven, acting as an emcee for many talented musicians, and spinning many gems from his collection in between sets.
