On alternate Mondays from 8:30 to 10:00 p.m. on the East Coast, join host Mike Atleson for Point of Departure, a program focusing primarily but not exclusively on jazz that combines or is influenced by other world music traditions, including those of Latin America, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Europe. The concept is to explore how jazz musicians from other countries incorporate indigenous musical traditions and how jazz musicians in this country incorporate foreign musical traditions. Series heard on Point of Departure include “Native American Jazz,” “East Asian Jazz,” and “Jewish Jazz.”
