Hey radio listeners,
As some of you may have noticed, we’re currently having a bit of trouble with our web stream. WRCT Information Services folks are aware of the issue, and we’re working to get the streams back up and running as soon as possible. In the meantime, you can always catch us on good old-fashioned 88.3 MHz FM, just like grandpa used to do. Thanks for listening!

SPOK FREVO ORQUESTRA
October 28, 2014
Cohen & Grigsby Trust Presents series
Spok Frevo Orquestra draws inspiration from frevo, a vibrant music of elaborated arrangements and deep roots. Spok Frevo takes tradition to the center stage, but does not renounce allegiance to freedom. It relies on what jazz is all about: improvisation. Spok Frevo Orquestra takesfrevo from its traditional supporting role at carnivals and presents it as the leading actor, shedding light on its original texture and complex technique – allowing room for artistic freedom and improvisation. With its inexhaustible energy and relentless, driving rhythms, “it would be difficult to find jazz music which is more infectious than fervor or more definitive of a region” (All About Jazz).
