Derrick Lucas, host of The Spectrum on Jazz 90.1 every Sunday night from 10 p.m. – 1 a.m., will be in the Reynolds Media Center talking about jazz and “spinning” some of his favorites along with music of local jazz musicians.  The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) officially designated April 30 as International Jazz Day in order to highlight jazz and its diplomatic role of uniting people in all corners of the globe. International Jazz Day brings together communities, schools, artists, historians, academics, and jazz enthusiasts all over the world to celebrate and learn about jazz and its roots, future and impact; raise awareness of the need for intercultural dialogue and mutual understanding; and reinforce international cooperation and communication. International Jazz Day is the culmination of Jazz Appreciation Month, which draws public attention to jazz and its extraordinary heritage throughout April. 

Derrick has been with Jazz90.1 since 1989 and is a five time JazzWeek Jazz Programmer of The Year nominee, and a winner of the award in 2006. Derrick’s lifelong obsession and passion for jazz started when he bought his first jazz album Spectrum, by drummer Billy Cobham—at age 4. When not at the station he often can be found at various times and places around the Flower City sharing and spreading his passion for great music, especially during the Jazz Festival.

The Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival (XRIJF) in Rochester, New York, has quickly become one of the nation's most popular and most respected music festivals. Founded in 2002 in Rochester NY, attendance at the Festival has grown each year, from 15,000 the first year to nearly 205,000 in 2016, attracting music lovers from around the U.S. and the world. From legendary performers and familiar favorites - to rising stars and new discoveries - this is a festival that navigates all genres of creative improvised music from all corners of the world. For more information please call the Reynolds Media Center at 585-428-8360www.facebook.com/RocCentralLibrary  The Central Library is accessible to people with disabilities.
