We here at MOJA Radio believe that when jazz became an ELECTRIC art form the Modern Era truly began, and no instrument made more of an impact than the Electric Guitar. This week we’ll celebrate that instrument, the great players of the guitar and the impact of the guitar on the modernization of jazz! We’ll begin things with MIKE STERN on MONDAY WITH THE MASTERS Monday, January 26th then close it out the following Monday, February 2nd, with the story of another great guitarist, LEE RITENOUR. We’ll give you another brave guitar master, JEFF BECK, who made the transition from a super-successful rock career to jazz fusion on LIVE @ MOJALand. Then we’ll give you a Friday filled with the greatest guitarists of the FUSION ERA on FUSION FRIDAY, and we’ll spend the day talking to a dozen of the members of the MOJA Guitar Hall of Fame on Saturday’s WORDS & MUSIC. And we’ll give you our special features that focus on ACID JAZZ and THE JAZZY JAMBANDS too. Of course there’s always much more coming your way this week!
