Red Jazz is a Breath of Fresh Air

If you like jazz music and you don't live in a city like New York where you can hear creative jazz people every night, you will probably really like Red Jazz.

This podcast and streaming radio program plays current music from many of today's younger jazz musicians, like Mark and Alan Ferber, who are friends of mine from college. The D.J., Corey James, tends to play recordings of artists that magazines like Downbeat would refer to as TDWR (Talent Deserving Wider Recognition).

The web site says that the program focuses on Los Angeles musicians, but I've found that not to be the case. A lot of the musicians are based in New York and in Europe. Give it a listen. I think you'll like it.
