Her show Jazz Inspired airs each week alongside special guests such as Seth MacFarlane, Robert Redford, Neal deGrasse Tyson and more, where they converse about the inspiration behind jazz music asking questions such as: "What inspires the people who inspire you? How do creative people create?"
This time, you get to be the special guest as Judy Carmichael presents as awe-inspiring 3-day weekend recording her Jazz Inspired broadcast. This year's schedule of events includes: Pianist Mark Shane joining Judy Carmichael in duetsâ€”with two Steinways onstage! Guitarist Chris Flory will join in for an evening of classic jazz. Bassist/saxophonist Mike Karn, who has toured with Ray Charles, takes the stage with Judy Carmichael and Chris Flory. Finally, drummer Tom Melito joins Mike Karn, Judy Carmichael and Chris Flory for a final event concert. Carmichael's premiere stride/swing piano artistry aims to inspire other to be creative and to think more in depth about jazz.
