The Great American Songbook

The Great American Songbook Jazz Night.
Let yourself be surprised by music by the greatest composers of the previous century in the most beautiful renditions.

A relaxing ballad is followed by a phenomenally swinging uptempo song.

Music from your own collection, that you would probably put on yourself but is now done for you.
Every first and third Friday to Saturday (and every fifth, if there is one) of the month, from 1am to 6am.
