Throughout April, Texas Public Radio has been celebrating Jazz Appreciation Month with a special five-week series, “Live At Jazz, TX,” featuring owner and bandleader Doc Watkins. In this episode, Doc moves off the piano bench and behind the console of the big B3 for that soulful Hammond organ sound, and songs like “A Night In Tunisia,” “Back at the Chicken Shack,” and the 1970s classic “Ain’t No Sunshine,” by Bill Withers.

Jazz TX

If you’ve been to Jazz, TX, you know that while jazz is the main course at the club, you’ll also find healthy side helpings of blues on the menu.

In this episode of "Live At Jazz, TX," guitarist Ruben V brings his band to the club and shares the stage with San Antonio’s own Doc Watkins on the Hammond organ for a six-song set featuring smoking blues and Latin grooves.

James Cullum

For over five decades, the Jim Cullum Jazz Band has kept the traditional jazz sound alive, playing the music of Louis Armstrong, Bix Beiderbecke, Duke Ellington, and tunes from the Great American Songbook. You heard them on Texas Public Radio for 25 years as the stars of “Riverwalk Jazz,” and now Jim Cullum is hitting the airwaves again, this time with Doc Watkins in an intimate set recorded live at Jazz, TX on March 8, 2017.

This week on “Live At Jazz, TX,” Doc Watkins and his Orchestra are joined by saxophonist, clarinetist, and the sweet-voiced Pierre Poree, for an evening of New Orleans-inspired music and merriment.
