Among the growing band of internet radio stations that are leading the fight to keep contemporary jazz alive, the SmoothGrooves Radio Show is right up there with the best. Presented live at 7-00 PM every Monday from UK based Gloucester Radio on 96.6 FM, and around the globe at 11-00 AM Pacific, 2-00 PM Eastern and 8-00 PM Central European time, the show is presented by the excellent Rich Edwards (pictured here with Jonathan Fritzen) and is replete with the same musical passion that is evident in everything that Rich does.
In recent weeks, and with one eye always on fresh new music, Rich has showcased the Four 80 East produced ‘Soul Revolution’ from Michael Dunstone plus ‘Magic’ from the massively underrated Michael Paulo. Equally good have been the jazz funk oriented ‘What About That’ by 76 Degrees West and ‘Riding High’ from Joel Rodney Siemion. With an ability to build that is awesome this is a tune designed to restore faith in the splendor of contemporary jazz.
