The soulful playing of Red Young on Hammond organ will sweep you up on this week’s “Live At Jazz, TX.” Young says the instrument reminds him of the human voice, with its high tremolo. (Give a listen about 16 minutes into the show to hear him explain it.)

Though he’s a master of jazz and blues, Young’s musical interests were piqued as a boy in Fort Worth.

Guitarist Devan Jones brings his swinging jump blues sound to Jazz, TX on this week’s program. Originally from Tennessee, Jones is now based out of Austin, and says he found the city to be a welcoming place for his style.

A fascinating gallery opening, an artful movie and Buddy Guy. There's a lot to do this weekend; this is just a snapshot. First off tonight--a photographer with a curiously titled exhibition.

"Miles per hour" Adam Rodriguez laughed. He and Jim Glasscock did something really unusual last year.

"He and I decided to ride our bikes from the Canadian Border in Montana, back to Rock Springs, where he's from."

The lively event Blues in the Garden takes place in a once-unlikely location, the quarry now known as the Japanese Tea Garden.
