Smooth Pizzazz Podcasts coming soon!
The dictionary defines the word "pizzazz" as, "Vigorous spirit; energy or excitement". We prefer jazz that is spirited and energetic...Jazz with Pizzazz! (No "snooze" jazz allowed!) We define "Snooze jazz" as "music that helps you go to sleep"! Smooth jazz can be more aptly described as "gentle instrumentals". Much of it doesn't swing like traditional jazz and there is more of a "laid back" quality to it. There is a time and place for this type of music and many great jazz musicians play and record this type of music. However, this can tend to blur the elements between traditional jazz and smooth jazz. But we have discovered that many listeners who first started out listening to smooth jazz eventually gravitate and work their way back to discover the wealth of jazz music in its more traditional forms...hence the name "Smooth Pizzazz"!
We carefully chose this name to attract the widest listening audience possible! We want young rockers tuning in! We want senior citizens to turn on their Miracle-Ear hearing aid and getting into the songs. We want you, your whole family, and all your friends to get into the jazz with pizzazz! There's bound to be something you like in our eclectic playlists.
Our broadcasts feature the top jazz musicians in the world! On Smooth Pizzazz it's all about the music! We play music from independent artists/labels and we play music from the major record labels. Tune in to "Smooth Pizzazz" for some the very best Jazz you will find anywhere on this planet!
Most of the music we play on Smooth Pizzazz would not be considered tame enough for the majority of FM Radio Smooth Jazz Stations out there! The focus here is on the writing, spiritual energy, musicianship, groove, vibe and the overall impact it has on the listener. Here at Smooth Pizzazz it's not about hype... It's all about the music!
We celebrate and promote the infinite variety of jazz music and our playlists reflect that! Within the framework of jazz music there is room for a myriad of styles and influences. Therefore we do not promote one style of jazz only. Neither do we discriminate on this basis either. Instead, we broadcast Jazz in its many forms, encouraging an open heart, mind, and attitude of acceptance and appreciation for the creative flow and musical ideas of others!
To help underwrite the cost of broadcasting on the internet there is a monthly fee of $7.95 to be a preferred listening member of Live 365. There is a free 5 day trial so what are you waiting for?
