Jazz Moods Radio offers a better variety of Jazz music
(Published: February 21, 2014)

How do you enjoy your jazz music' Smooth' Peppered with Latin flavors' Vintage blends, straight with no chaser or just downright funky' You can have it all and then some when you tune in to Jazz Moods Radio.

The online radio station was launched in late October by founder Asha Brodie who also serves as the CEO of the company. Asha said the station is special to her because it was born out of the desire to keep the good music of jazz flowing.

Asha who has written for her personal jazz blog called Asha Brodie Jazz since 2006 said that she wanted to open up another way to promote jazz music and artists. "I really wanted to create a platform for my readers to "hear" the new jazz music I wrote about and purchase the artists' CD." She also said that the station was also established to promote and support burgeoning jazz artists seeking exposure as well.

In the middle of October, Asha was able to launch Jazz Moods Radio and with just two and a half short months on the air, the station has exceeded all of her expectations. "I sat in awe as I watched the statistics and saw that I had listeners from as far as Russia, Serbia, France, Japan, Israel, Greece and even the Caribbean and more. It was definitely mind-blowing because I had not even started promoting it heavily just yet."

Today Asha works with a small team who assists in keeping the momentum flowing. Over the Christmas holidays, the station launched a campaign filled with holiday giveaways.

The month of January saw a phenomenal growth in listeners as they tuned in faithfully each day for the two hour Jazz Grammy Awards spotlight. The show was hosted by the charismatic DJ Big Kahuna and featured music from those nominated at the recently concluded 57th Annual Grammy Awards.

Following the success of the Grammy Awards show, Jazz Moods Radio has recently introduced the concert-styled show called "The Jazz Hole." The two-hour show is hosted by DJ Big Kahuna and features music from one jazz artist each Wednesday night. Trumpeter Roy Hargrove was the spotlight artist in the inaugural show.

Listeners of Jazz Moods Radio can expect even more great shows in the months ahead including a show which premieres new CDs on the day that they are released as well as conversations with both upcoming and established Jazz artists.

Jazz Moods Radio is an internet radio station owned and operated by Asha Brodie. Asha has had a long affiliation with jazz music beginning as a jazz columnist with the Trinidad Guardian newspapers in Trinidad where she lived.

Through her column On A Jazznote, she was given the opportunity to cover and report on quite a few major jazz concerts in the Caribbean.

When she migrated to the United States, she continued her passion for jazz by becoming a freelance writer with JazzReview.com where she reviewed new Jazz releases and interviewed some of best in the industry.

Aside from authoring her own blog Asha Brodie Jazz which features informative jazz news, reviews and interviews, she also writes occasionally with Smooth Jazz Magazine.

She describes this radio station as another layer in her jazz-induced life.
