Jazz radio is getting hard to find in these days of corporately owned radio conglomerates, especially real jazz on the radio. Jazz radio that swings is even harder to find, particularly jazz radio shows or stations that mix together the greatest swing jazz of all time regardless of decade.

Jazz Joint Jump is jazz radio that swings, plain and simple. It has been known to create the urge to snap your fingers, pat your foot, bob your head or crane your neck like a chicken to the steady, flowing beat. Hand dance, swing dance, play air piano on your dashboard or computer keyboard are a few more of the improvisational urges the music of the Jazz Joint invokes. Every artist listed on the various pages of this site is heard from time to time on the show and (as Sinatra said to Count Basie just prior to their live performance of Fly Me To The Moon at the Sands Hotel) "in the right tempo!"

Most radio stations today, especially the corporate ones, have gone to computer-programmed play lists. Announcers these days are paid to sit in front of a computer to read and prerecord line for line, which songs are coming up before they are even aired! Forget requests (unless its on the play list) and so much for any semblance of creativity or personality.

Jazz Joint Jump is free form jazz radio. Almost every show contains at least a one or two-song jazz musician birthday tribute to whomever might be born during the week of our live jazz radio broadcast. You will also hear jazz recordings cut during the week of the show throughout jazz history. This jazz radio show covers roughly the years 1935 to the present and the glue that holds it all together is the smooth, flowing rhythm of the music. Truly this is not the type of decade and era hopping that you’ll find anywhere else on the air today.

Two hours a week may be a small window for most people to actually remember that there is a jazz radio show that swings on the air (remember that’s Tuesdays 4-6 PM Pacific) but if jazz that swings is your thing you won’t be disappointed.

It used to be that on this page we provided the archives of our past jazz radio shows so folks could listen at their leisure. Unfortunately, nowadays streaming copyrighted music (even if it’s been aired and the fees paid for by the station) is illegal according to the RIAA. So for now Tuesdays 4-6 PM Pacific, right here using the links above or live in Central California at 90.7 FM, is your time to boogie woogie, honky tonky and all that other mother jazz in the right tempo. Jazz Joint Jump. It’s jazz radio that swings Dad.
