black jazz records

Artform Radio brings some key players in the Black Jazz Records movement. Listen in as Adrian Younge speaks with Doug Carn and Jean Carne.

Founded in Oakland, The Black Jazz label was created to promote the talents of young African American jazz musicians and singers, and released twenty albums between 1971 and 1975. Some of the more notable artists to record for Black Jazz Records were organist/pianist Doug Carn, whose four albums were the most successful of any Black Jazz artist. Carn’s wife at the time, Jean Carn, sang on his albums; she changed her name to Jean Carne and went on to have a successful solo career as an R & B singer. Other masters from the Black Jazz label that will be joining us are Calvin Keys and Henry Franklin. They will be supported by an all star cast of musicians, bringing the Black Jazz catalog to life. Listen to new mixes of the Black Jazz catalog from Giles Peterson, Theo Parrish and Dj Muro.

We continue our weekly shows from the heart of Los Angeles. Artform Radio is a storefront radio excursion, a diverse journey into forward thinking music, culture and ideas and a series of live broadcasts that will take place every Thursday from 12 PM to 8 PM (PST) / 8 PM to 4 AM (GMT), coming to you from The Artform Studio in Los Angeles via Worldwide FM.
