Smooth Jazz Marches on!

Smooth Jazz followers, you know who you are and so do many demographers. You typically own your own home, are more educated than the average and earn over $75K. That’s a pretty nice market, don’t you think? So it begs the question as to why, in many markets such as NYC, have the smooth jazz radio stations been coopted by rock formats. The reason is that radio is a numbers game and we are outnumbered by all the teenagers tuning into to rock.

That said, smooth jazz is alive and well. It has merely transitioned to a new home – the internet and satellite radio, both comfortable formats for this demographic base.

Not only has it found a new home, but a plethora of new music has been created in the genre. Great musicians who can stir the soul with instrumental music continue to increase the output of new smooth jazz music. Thankfully it has veered far off the trajectory of silly instrumental cover songs. It is blossoming into a great catalogue of original groove, funk and fusion. And this blog is here to keep you posted as to what’s new in Smooth jazz. So put the top down on the sports car, hook up the Ipod and let’s groove, chill and enjoy!

About Daniel Odescalchi

I've been a smooth jazz fan since I was first turned onto David Sanborn, Marcus Miller & Bob James in the 80's. And who could forget Dave Grusin. Unfortunately after a while too many people started doing pop covers and it polluted the smooth jazz pool. That's starting to change and this blog is dedicated to educating people on the enjoyment of smooth jazz and the artists that perform it.
