In this month’s special Uncle Dan and Sophie Jam, Dan Wakefield and Sophie Faught dig deep into the history of jazz on Indiana Avenue in Indianapolis. The program includes the veteran writer Wakefield interviewing author Aleta Hodge about her book Indiana Avenue—Life and Musical Journey from 1915 to 2015: Ragtime, Blues, Jazz, Spiritual, Bebop, Doo Wop, Motown, Opera and Hip Hop. The saxophonist Faught will play musical selections from Indiana Avenue, joined by keyboardist Carl Hines, who played at many clubs on that scene, and drummer Kenny Phelps. The show was recorded live before an audience at the Jazz Kitchen in Indianapolis.
