Jazzy Sundays is about celebrating the legacy of jazz in Houston.

As part of this mission DJ Flash Gordon created this music playlist highlighting Houston musicians with roots in the 3rd Ward. You can hear many of the artists included in this playlist during the Jazzy Sunday Series at Emancipation Park in September! Listen here: 

And here's the playlist for the Jazzy Sunday Series at Discovery Green in October! This list includes classics from Earl Mosely and the Crusaders who were great jazz musicians from the 5th Ward, as well as HSPVA's legendary jazz program. Listen here:
