Karim's earliest memories of music include listening to: Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan and many more of the greats. He truly believes that being exposed to this music at an early stage in his life, has developed into a lifelong appreciation and love of jazz.
Jazz Essentials was born at Mohawk College's radio station in Hamilton and ran for 5 years. Karim is grateful to be able to bring the show to a new home: The Grand @ 101. Jazz Essentials will feature the jazz greats and new artists who are taking jazz in interesting directions. The show will also feature interviews with artists and highlight local concerts.
Please join Karim Sundays 8-10 pm to explore the vastness of the jazz genre.
