Live At Jazz TX

Saturdays, 7 p.m.

Nathan Cone and Doc Watkins host an hour of great jazz, recorded live at Jazz TX at the historic Pearl Brewery.

After a limited run this spring, the program will return to the TPR airwaves this fall.


Four months ago, pianist and bandleader Brent "Doc" Watkins opened a new club at the Pearl Brewery dedicated to America's music: jazz. But the Texas twist is right there in the name: Jazz, TX. It's the Pearl's first venue dedicated to music, although the menu is tasty enough to lure culinary connoisseurs as well. I sat down earlier this fall for an interview with Doc about the club, the music, and his life in both.
