The Source: 'Riverwalk Jazz' Ends, But The Band Plays On

Dec 30, 2015

Jim Cullum Jr. and his band put San Antonio firmly on the map of Jazz cities. His show, "Riverwalk Jazz," delighted audiences across the United States. His performances from "The Landing" on San Antonio's riverwalk became a staple of Jazz aficionados. The show aimed to resonate and educate audiences with early and mid 20th century Jazz. 

While the 26-year run of Riverwalk Jazz ended last weekend on the radio, the band willl continue to play on with its iconic leader and Cornetist Jim Cullum Jr. still running the show. The band plays all over San Antonio to this day, often at Tuckers Cozy Corner on the near eastside, a venerable establishment bought by his son in not-too-distant past. The band continues to push their wonderful music and recordings. In fact they release a live recording of Gershwin's Porgy and Bess early next year.

For "Riverwalk Jazz" lovers there is no reason to worry, you can continue to hear the show's 4,000 song performances, dozens of guest profiles and live streams on their website.
