Live At Jazz TX

Saturdays, 7 p.m.

The culture of South Texas and America's great gift to the world, jazz music, come together each week on "Live At Jazz, TX," as Nathan Cone and Doc Watkins host an hour of great music, recorded live at Jazz, TX at the historic Pearl Brewery. On-stage and backstage interviews offer insight into the music and performers, and there's a magical surprise every night (kind of like a Cracker Jack prize, but on the radio)!

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.
