I just recently deepened my interest in Jazz and I've been listening to jazzradio.com, non stop. What's your favorite station over there?

Love this performance by Anita O'Day at Newport.

Lately I've been spending my early Saturday evenings listening to John Pizzarelli's Radio Deluxe on our local jazz station. I have to say I really like his eclectic and broad taste in jazz. Anyone else listen to this broadcast?

From the Newport 1958 album. Recently acquired this album and can't get enough of this track!

I just love jazz on Sunday afternoons like most South Africans. Thank you for acceptance to the group.

OK, so, the wife and I are planning a trip to NYC later on this year.  She wants to do the whole Late Night TV thing (Letterman, SNL, like that) and Broadway.  I have a couple of things I want to do myself, so, anyone from the Apple who is in the know in this group, I'd appreciate any help you can offer.  A) How difficult is it to get into the Jazz at Lincoln Center complex?  Do I need to order tickets ahead of the trip, or can I pick up good seats by walking up to the box office? Also B) How prevalent are jazz shows outside that complex, is there a certain section of town I need to go to, like 52nd Street used to be, or, is it just no longer there?  Any help is appreciated.

Found another one I'm liking as well ... http://www.jazzradio.com/hardbop
Hard Bop is my favorite of all the jazz flavors and most of jazz collection is from that style.

Say Hey William, I'm able to stream your jazz station you referred us in iTunes under the radio area ... nice thanx for the head's up. :)
Comment by William Smith on September 16, 2010 at 10:25am
Give it a try Michael, there is a haven from smooth jazz. The station Jazz.fm has more listeners outside of Greater Toronto/Buffalo NY courtesy the web and their iPhone app than over the air.
