Bitches Brew

From Melbourne

About Bitches Brew
In 1969, Miles Davis turned jazz on its head. Bitches Brew was a groundbreaking album that added new sounds to jazz, making everyone take notice. Miles introduced rock sounds as well as many electronic instruments. My program is inspired by this album. You will hear music from that era and earlier, as well as many new releases, featuring jazz, rock, fusion and progressive rock. I also include Indian and other world Mmusic influences. I have been a volunteer contributor to Community Radio since 1979, playing this unique music.

Jazz Bastard

About Jazz Bastard
Let's talk about jazz! There are lots of podcasts that offer playlists of jazz, but fewer which discuss the music in depth. The goal here is to have a causal but thorough conversation about jazz albums - something more along the lines of chatting about movies or athletes with friends than attending a lecture or seminar. Why "bastard"? Jazz music and musicians are under incredible economic and cultural stress. It's hard to get a hearing (or get paid) for making this beautiful music, and as a result sometimes every release is treated with kid gloves, like an orchard that might wilt if exposed to the outside air. But music only survives when listeners passionately engage with it. We try to be honest about our feelings - our likes and dislikes - on the show. Thoughtful, but honest. What makes an album - out of the hundreds released every year - really grab you? Why does another one - technically excellent though it may be - fail to connect? These are the questions we bastards ask. You'll probably disagree with our answers and that's ok. Just let us know!

Liner Notes

About Liner Notes
A few years ago, in a conversation with a colleague of mine after a gig, we realized that our generation gleaned much of our knowledge of the history of jazz music from reading the liner notes off the backs of LPs. Today my students have fluid access to more recordings than they could ever possibly listen to, but they often know little about the musicians who play on the recordings, why the recordings were created, or what they are about. In the era of iTunes and Spotify, the liner notes that provide this information are not easily available when downloading a recording. In thinking about this void of knowledge, which I feel is a real lack of connection between the artist and listener, I conceived of a podcast/radio program intended to serve as a tool to fill in the gaps in this lack of knowledge, that additionally would provide an artist the opportunity to reveal the humanity behind the music. This project is an extension of my creative research, in that I believe that I have an obligation to this music and to my students to make connections between the artist and listener.

Mondo Jazz

About Mondo Jazz
Mondo Jazz is dedicated to the proposition that Jazz is a language that originated in the United States but is now spoken all over the world in various, at times very strong, accents, which make it a rich resource for rewarding sonic explorations. Therefore this podcast will feature a mix of Jazz from the United States and the rest of the world to show that there exists a continuous exchange and cross-pollination between these two worlds. Duke Ellington famously said: "There are simply two kinds of music, good music and the other kind...." Mondo Jazz sticks to that principle and will feature only good music, without much concern for how it is labelled, even though our core focus is jazz.

One Man's Jazz

Host: Maurice Hogue
Show Archive
From Winnipeg

About One Man's Jazz
One Man's Jazz has been in existence since 1999. I had always wanted to try my hand at doing radio because I loved jazz, had too many records, was active in it as a performer, and I was working as an artist representative and manager for primarily jazz artists. And apparently I have a "radio" voice. Ha! So when a new local college station was looking for volunteers, I jumped at the chance. I was so excited the day of my first show that I left the house wearing my house slippers.

That excitement has not left, and even though I tired of the college scene, I decided to head for the world of extraterrestrial radio and join Taint Radio in 2012, where a group of passionate programmers could freely program whatever the hell they like, right up until Taint Radio closed operations in April 2024. And I still do. My tastes in the music have changed considerably since those first days of Brubeck and early Miles and Coltrane. Nowadays I'm all about expanding the palette, looking at artists from other countries besides North America, searching beyond the mainstream, and focusing on moving the music forward.

I relish my time doing One Man's Jazz, because it really is all about the music and the people who make it. I hope you'll join me once in a while here on AAJ, the show website or Mixcloud.com.

From Washington

About The Outer View
The Outer View is a radio show dedicated to exploring all the facets of modern jazz as it is played all over the world in a time span ranging from the bebop era up to the present. I often spend a show dealing with one particular theme. Sometimes I focus on a particular group of instruments like saxophones, pianos, and guitars and other string instruments Other times I do shows on large ensembles, female musicians, vocalists, jazz from movies and television, jazz from foreign countries, blues, and the cross-pollination of jazz with classical music, poetry, rock and folk. On all occasions I always try to include the work of little-known musicians as well as the established names. My slogan is "Tune in and hear something you never heard before".
