AccuRadio announces new jazz subchannels "Covering All the Bassists" & "Jazz Fusion"
Leading webcaster AccuRadio.com recently made public two brand new internet jazz radio stations: “Covering All the Bassists" and “Jazz Fusion." The two new radio streams join eleven current jazz subchannels ranging from the catch-all “All That Jazz" to “Piano Jazz," and “New School."
"Covering All the Bassists" joins “Piano Jazz," “Saxophone Jazz," “Jazz Vocals" and “Guitar Jazz" as an instrument-specific channel. While the jazz bassist is often relegated to a background role, the AccuRadio channel showcases music that puts the spotlight on these under-appreciated bottom-end players. Listeners will enjoy music from bass players who double as band leaders, like Charles Mingus, Ray Brown and Dave Holland. They will also hear music from other instrumentalists who give their bassists time to shine in solo spots.
"Jazz Fusion" joins “Old School," “New School," "Latin Infusion" and "West and Cool" as a genre-specific channel. The channel casts a large net into the world of jazz fusion, covering everything from early groove-jazz to jazz-rock and world fusion. Miles Davis' early avant-garde experiments with jazz-rock play alongside John McLaughlin's guitar wizardry and Medeski Martin and Wood's ultra-hip neo-jazz.
AccuRadio and its jazz brand, AccuJazz, will begin rolling out over 20 new channels in the coming months, including more genre-specific, instrument-specific, and region-specific channels, as well as some other bizarre creations by the jazz programming team.
