Jumping Swing, Classic Blues and Hot Jazz - Old and New

JAZZ RHYTHM explores the lore, culture and personalities of early Jazz bringing alive the colorful characters, inside stories and distinctive atmosphere of early Jazz. 

After more than 30 years of production I’ve renewed and expanded my mission:
JAZZ RHYTHM offers programming advancing our understanding and enjoyment of  early Jazz, Swing and Blues.  New programs will emphasize rare and unreleased music, interviews and other primary sources. 

JAZZ RHYTHM aims to significantly enrich our understanding of  jazz with original research.  The handful of newly available programs and web pages each year are thoroughly researched, offering greater depth for exploration and interactivity.

The programs are underpinned by these web pages containing rare music and interview archives, photos, articles and unique resources inviting direct engagement with the lore, culture and personalities of early jazz.
