Detroit JazzStage

Was the 2006 International Detroit Jazz Festival not enough for you?  I was recently turned on to a great monthly show that showcases Detroit jazz artists.

Every month JazzStage features an artist, interviewing them in a documentary style format with music selections throughout.  They run about 1 hour each and are currently at show #16 which features this year’s Jazz Fest.

    Thanks so much for noticing us. We will be doing a special feature on the festival with at least on of the people responsible for putting the show on. They will be providing us with some great recordings from the show.

    In addition, we are going to be working with the Max M. Fisher music center and will be recording three of their programs live. Our visibilty in the scene has progressed nicely and I look forward to a consitant level of great guests and music.

    You are very welcome. I think it is an outstanding podcast. I mentioned it to a few jazz-loving friends and they agreed: this is one of the best done shows on the net. Keep up the work and keep us informed.

    This is one of my favorite podcasts! You can’t beat its jazz, especially when it’s free.

    Thanks for the comments. We are going to have a great show that I think will be historically important someday. We have the great Faruq Z. Bey. In addition to leading the Griot Galaxy free jazz group, he was a counter culture hero of the late 60’s through the present time. The Metro Times had a great story on him that will give you an idea on how lucky we were to get him to sit down with us. We even have a copy of a rare and highly collectable Griot Galaxy album called Kins to play.

    Thanks again,
