Featuring topline Aussie acts talking up and playing their recent Australian music faves, Australian Music Is Bloody Great is a great way not only to discover the incredible range of sounds being produced here, but also a reminder to share them and support our artists.
Blues Roots N Boots explores the three genres that have come to underpin most of what we listen to today. With a focus on revealing the depth of talent that exists in Australia within these music forms Blues Roots N Boots is unashamedly weighted in its content to
Australian artists while allowing room for the best of what is available from the international scene.
JMIA showcases the talents of Australian jazz musicians and composers with what’s current. Occasionally an interview, a focus on a particular event or a look back brings into conversation the history of jazz in Australia.
With Australian artists being recognised at international levels in awards and competitions, host Paula Langlands celebrates all that Australian jazz.
If you are a musician with a new recording, some interesting archival material, news of National interest such as a major performance, jazz event or tour — or you wish to get information or comment on the program, please contact Amy direct on <email@example.com>.
Music with a jazz feel along with entertaining and informative chat.
The presenters have a range of expertise and styles of humour!
You’ll hear recordings from the 1920s onwards, from current musicians in Australia and elsewhere, and in particular styles such as neo-swing.
Jazzy invites listeners to relax deep into the passenger seat, and shines the headlights towards the people behind the players.
Hot, Sweet and Jazzy is a program that brings the fun back into music. A team of presenters brings you interesting and enjoyable music, much of it not available on Australian radio, along with entertaining and informative chat.
The music is jazz and jazz-aligned, but covering many possible definitions of ‘jazz’! There are no limits to the program’s musical sources, but Australian musicians provide an important part of the material. The show is probably most suitable for afternoon and evening.
Hot, Sweet and Jazzy’s presenters are all music enthusiasts and many are practising musicians:
” Peter Milley: trumpeter and leader of the Cairo Club Orchestra; record collector; supplied period recordings for the soundtrack to the Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries series.
” Peter Fogarty: music lover; arranger; singer in jazz bands.
” Ian Coots: former professional drummer for over 25 years; record collector.
” Ken Hirst: former bass player with jazz and blues bands; leader of his own Neo Swing Band – Swing It!
” Ross Williamson: music lover; program co-ordinator.
” John Thompson: student of jazz and of its roots; country blues aficionado; record collector.
