The Roots of Smooth

Wednesday 11am-12pm & 11pm-12am


The Roots of Smooth puts a “human face” on the music, deepening listeners’ connection to artists who come from every corner of the globe, using their voices to share stories of how their life experiences and passions helped shape the music they make and enjoy. The show is a “Jazz Gumbo Lens”, drawing connections among all genres of music.

The Roots of Smooth is a music program, that more broadly displays how music connects us to a global community. This hour-long series showcases artists playing their music, and the music of their influences both in and outside of the jazz world. You’ll hear the music of their peers, and the young artists they have influenced. It is an engaging smart blend. Hear the personal journeys of legends such as Grover Washington Jr. and Toots Theilemans as well as the latest generation of players including Esperanza Spaulding and Amina Figarova.
