John Pizzarelli is among the jazz musicians Michael Paul Lund has known and will celebrate on WERU’s “Groove Shop.”

Orland — Lincolnville’s Michael Paul Lund will return to the airwaves Thursday, Jan 17, as the sole guest of Holbrook Williams’ jazz show, "Groove Shop," from 6 to 8 p.m. on WERU-FM.

Lund will draw from his Serendipity Recordings catalog, as well play piano, during the two-hour special. He also has requested selections for Williams to play.

“I will do verbal commentary on all the jazz artists I play, some of who are musicians I have known and called friends,” Lund said

Those friends include pianist Donald Shirley, subject of the recent Hollywood movie “Green Room." Lund said he will feature only one jazz singer, Nancy Marano, also a friend and a fine jazz singer and music educator at Manhattan School of Music.

“And I also will play guitarist John Pizzarelli, who was a music customer of mine when he was still a teenager, now an established star,” Lund said.

The show will focus on jazz piano, vibraphone, jazz violin, jazz guitar and jazz organ, he said.

The show will be broadcast at 89.9 FM in the Midcoast, 99.9 FM in Bangor, and also will be streamed live at weru.org. The studio line for listeners to call in during the live broadcast is 469-0500. The "Groove Shop" show will be archived after the show airs and so can be listened to afterwards on the community radio station’s website.
