Best 35 Years of Local Jazz: Bob Seymour

Best 35 Years of Local Jazz

He fills our nights with Miles, Coltrane, a smooth bossa nova, a skronky Ornette Coleman, which alone merits an award, but Bob Seymour is so much more than another DJ on the left side of the dial. The silky-voiced host of All Night Jazz has served as jazz director for WUSF 89.7 for more than three decades, shepherding us into the wee hours with some of the greatest tunes of all time and some exciting new compositions you won’t hear anywhere else. A local music icon himself, he has interviewed a mind-boggling number of jazz legends and supports the jazz scenes throughout the Tampa Bay region.
