On this week’s program we change things up quite a bit. For the first time in the history of the podcast we have a full music program. I call it, “The History of Jazz – Part 1”.

The fact is the Jazz isn’t really a genre at all. The term “Jazz” has so many different sub-genres that it will be impossible to cover them all. So, I plan to introduce and describe as many styles as I can. Also, I will present them in chronological order starting with the oldest known Jazz recording to the latest styles out there today. We will cover Dixieland, Traditional Jazz, Swing, Bebop, Latin Jazz, Cool Jazz, Funk, Fusion, Smooth Jazz and Acid Jazz. Each one of these could be a standalone episode. You might be asking yourself what does this got to do with stories and storytelling. Well first, music is just another way to tell a story and second what we are doing in this festival is to tell the story of Jazz music.

Copyright laws prohibit me from playing full versions of many of the songs. I try to use public domain whenever possible, but with the newer tunes it just can’t be done. To best of my knowledge all of the full versions of the tunes used in this broadcast are in the public domain. If you own the rights to any of the works please let me know and I will remove the song or chop it down. Later this week I will post a blog as to where you can listen to full versions the titles used in this program.

Thank You,

Ronald Hood
