AccuJazz internet radio began its weekly roll-out of new creatively programmed jazz channels today with the release of “Straight Ahead," a customizable radio stream playing nothing but swinging jazz. The channel plays over 1600 songs from Dexter Gordon to Bill Charlap, and doesn't play any free jazz, fusion or ballads. Classic big band swing by Basie and Ellington plays alongside the soulful hard bop of Art Blakey, Clifford Brown and Gene Ammons. The play list also includes modern swingmasters like Benny Green, Wynton Marsalis and Joey DeFrancesco.

AccuJazz.com is a leading internet jazz radio station that recently launched a brand new Web site with two dozen channels. “Straight Ahead" marks the beginning of a weekly roll-out of new channels that will continue indefinitely. Future channels include such eclectic themes as “Avant-Garde Jazz," “Organ Jazz," and “Regions: Chicago." All channels are free to use and customizable, with the options to “deselect" artists from the play list and pause or skip songs.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
