chairman of the board.. monumental contributions thru several decades..
great Crooner & trumpet player.. Pops changed the way jazz was played.. and he endured for 50 years.. his "Satch plays Fats" and "Plays WC Handy" are classics.. can be heard here..
still going - his "Sings Ellington Hot n Kool" must be heard to be believed - hear it on Crooners..
she just didn't record a poor trak.. made even silly songs sound poignant.. made her players sound even better..
first lady of jazz. made her own breaks.. shines on Crooners esp. with her Verve work with Louis Armstrong..
Our friend, Bill from the "Land-down-under" has impeccable taste with Ella, Benny Goodman, Les Brown, etc. a nice lo-band webcast for you dial-up modem-users..! (--:
interesting guy, great collection of 1920-30's music and other quirky sound bites from that era..
Our sister station, for Preferred Members. a great mix of hot instrumentals (+vocals), featuring smaller swing groups (Coleman Hawkins, Lester Young, Django), plus Bix and the Big Bands. Restored versions of great jam sessions.
new! great broad collection of 1950's and 60's jazz by a fellow canuck..! a little different focus from my 'hot n sweet' crooners from the 30's and 40's!
