More informationThe New Jazz Archive (TNJA) is a PRX-syndicated weekly hour-long radio series documenting jazz's often unrecognized place in American life. Each hour-long episode offers a collection of stories, interviews, and music that relates jazz to other aspects of American life, including pop culture, social issues, art, history, movies, and even other forms of music. TNJA is hosted by composer and musician Jeff Haas, son of the legendary Detroit radio host Karl Haas.
TNJA is produced out of WICA (Interlochen Public Radio) in Traverse City, Michigan.
