Centenary of jazz on Czech Radio


To mark the centenary of Czech Radio, the public broadcaster’s jazz station prepared a special project called 100 Years of Jazz/100 Years of Radio. Within the project, contemporary composers were asked to create new arrangements of traditional jazz compositions, which are connected in one way or another to the history of Czech Radio. To mark the anniversary, Czech Radio also commissioned a brand new composition called Swinging on the Radio Waves. The songs were performed by the Gustav Brom Radio Big Band at a concert earlier this year and you can listen to some of them now, in this edition of Sunday Music Show.
