Rise with Mark Maxwell

    RISE "a weekly creative jazz celebration of African roots, social consciousness and spiritual transcendence".  Stylistically it generally revolves around a specific sub-genre that has come to be called "spiritual jazz"; however, I often touch base with many other facets of the jazz tradition.  It is mostly a music mix show with occasional live performances and interviews as well as regular announcements regarding local community events and performances.
