Accujazz Internet Radio Introduces "Modern Mainstream" Jazz Channel
(Published: April 02, 2009)

AccuJazz Internet radio continues its weekly roll-out of new streaming jazz channels with "Modern Mainstream," a collection of the best in mainstream jazz from the last three decades. The channel is free to use and available 24 hours a day.

For fans of quality modern jazz, the channel is likely to become a favorite listening destination. The play list includes music by masters like Michael Brecker, Pat Metheny, Chick Corea and Wynton Marsalis as well as hundreds of other talented jazz musicians. There is a lot of stylistic variation in the channel, from French harmonica stylist Olivier Ker Ourio to young hip-hop-tinged trumpeter Maurice Brown, but there is a common thread among the thousands of songs: it is all modern jazz that isn't too rigidly tethered to the traditions of the past and isn't too bent on being "cutting edge"either. There's no hard-core fusion or free jazz here.

With the addition of "Modern Mainstream" to the AccuJazz channel list, there are now seven different channels of modern jazz from which listeners can select. The catch-all channel, "New School," plays everything from '60s post-bop to the present, and other offerings include "Jazz Fusion," "Cutting Edge," "Groove Jazz," "Third Stream," and "Avant-Garde Jazz." And these channels only make up a fraction of the 31 channels currently offered by AccuJazz!

Channels from other categories include "Piano Jazz," "Decade: '50s," and "Old School." For a more detailed description of the channel, read AccuJazz programmer Lucas Gillan's post on the AccuJazz AccuBlog.

AccuJazz Internet radio launches a new channel every week. Recent new channels include "Third Stream," "Women of Jazz," and "Pre-1940 Jazz." Listen now at AccuJazz.com.
