Joy To The World featuring Jane Monheit

Join us for this year’s broadcast of Bob Thompson’s Joy to the World on the WVPB radio and television networks. Recorded last December at the Culture Center Theater in Charleston, W.Va., this year’s holiday jazz celebration features favorites, old and new, performed by pianist and WV Music Hall of Fame member Bob Thompson and his band, along with this season’s guest vocalist, Jane Monheit.

You'll hear Monheit put her special touch on some classic songs, including "Winter Wonderland," "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town," and her rendition of "Merry Christmas Darling," made famous by The Carpenters, is a beautiful highlight.

Audiences will also enjoy instrumental takes of seasonal gems like "Jingle Bells", "Sing We Now Of Christmas" and “O Little Town of Bethlehem," performed by pianist Bob Thompson’s band, with Doug Payne on saxophone, Ryan Kennedy on guitar, John Inghram on bass, and Timothy Courts on drums.
