with Mark Gruder

The Blue Groove is the spot where Jazz meets World Music. Traditional and indigenous musicians from around the world have been influenced by American jazz artists for almost a century. And for just as long, American jazz artists have been digging the sounds of the world’s best musicians. From Latin America to Africa; from Europe to Asia; from The Near to The Far East: See how it all comes together, on The Blue Groove.

Originally from New York City, Mark Gruder grew up listening to jazz and the blues
from a very young age and, as a hobby, he studied music and played
the trumpet in salsa bands throughout the city. Now in retirement, Gruder
looked for a way to volunteer, to give something back to my new
community. Given the opportunity to host a World Music/Jazz show on
WSLR, he gladly embraced it.
