Scott Hopkins and Tim Wright are your Sunday evening hosts for The Colors of Jazz. Tim and Scott have been working together to bring you the very best in jazz of all colors, flavors, varieties and styles. We see jazz as a big tent, covering a wide range of styles, from the big bands of the 1930s through the smaller combos of the 50s and 60s up through fusion and some of the more experimental sounds.
Colors of Jazz covers local Tampa Bay jazz acts, something you won’t find elsewhere, and we support the local jazz scene. The Tampa Bay region has an abundance of jazz talent, and we play their recordings. This is the jazz show, where you’ll hear music nobody else plays on the radio. Tune in and find out for yourself, then tell your jazz-loving friends.
We’re your Sunday evening dinner and after-dinner music to wrap up the weekend. Colors of Jazz is your respite of relaxation before Monday arrives and the rat race resumes. Jazz radio during the twilight hours, only on WMNF.
“Jazz isn’t dead. It just smells funny.” — Frank Zappa.
