On Labor Day morning, the Allerton Music Barn Festival will present a program called "The West Coast Sound," the cool, swinging jazz represented by the likes of Chet Baker and Gerry Mulligan. The stars of the Allerton show are all members of the University of Illinois jazz faculty. We'll feature a few of their number on the Wednesday edition of "Live and Local."

On the Tuesday edition of "Live and Local," we'll talk with Boris Berman, the acclaimed Russian-born pianist who will perform at the Allerton Music Barn Festival in Monticello on Sunday night, and Michael Luxner, conductor of the Millikin-Decatur Symphony, which plays its annual Labor Day Pops Concert on Monday.
