On the April 20 Journeys into Jazz host Chuck France chats with Matthew Sanborn who is the Wisconsin Film Festival Music Director. Sanborn collaborated with Professor Ben Reiser of the UW-Madison Department of Communication Arts on the wonderful film trailers seen at the beginning of each screening. They have teamed up with a wide range of local film artists, musicians and actors since making a mark in 2014 with the popular “Campfire trailer.” The YouTube video for this year’s trailer is now online, along with many previous years. Matthew discusses the music productions from the 2014, 2019 and 2022 trailers, which will be heard on Journeys into Jazz at 3:30.
JIJ will also celebrate the April 20th birthdays of multi-instrumentalist Lionel Hampton, bassist Avishai Cohen (with Chick Corea) and the famous bandleader Tito Puente. Tune in starting at 2 pm for the fun at WORT 89.9 FM or stream at wortfm.org
