Acclaimed jazz pianist Larry Vuckovich presents a “Live Streaming Solo Piano Journey” 1 p.m. every Saturday afternoon.

Vuckovich, a frequent performer at the Wunderman House in Mountain View prior to the shelter-in-place orders, performs music from a variety of jazz greats, sprinkling his performances with commentaries and anecdotes.

A viewer of one of Vuckovich’s streaming dates may hear music from pioneers such as jazz Charlie Parker or Thelonious Monk, or Latin jazz and music from the Great American Songbook from composers such as George Gershwin and Cole Porter.

A native of Serbia, Vuckovich has performed all over the world since the 1950s, playing with the likes of Mel Tormé, Tony Bennett, Cab Calloway and Rosemary Clooney. He is credited with fusing Balkan ethnic music with American jazz.

Performances are recorded and posted on YouTube. Vuckovich is accepting donations.

“In these difficult times, any donation, however big or small, is appreciated,” said the pianist. “If you are unable to donate, you can still access the show and enjoy the music.”
