older players and unusual guests

I like this show because Ms Carmichael interviews players from my era (Bucky Pizzarelli, George Wein) and younger people who are unusual because they’re not pro players but have good observations about jazz (Jeff Goldblum, Roy Scheider).

Insightful interviews

Jazz Inspired is my Sunday morning “wake up call” at 6:00am. Hearing the intro jump starts the day and gets me ready for an always great interview. Each week it is an inspiring conversation between Judy and her guest to which the listener is being invited, and it is always a good time! The program has broadened my appreciation of jazz and has introduced me to many artists with whom I was not familiar as well as the music and musicians from the swing era of jazz. Jazz Inspired will stay as my Sunday morning wake up call but with the podcast, I can drop in to hear a conversation anytime!

Inspiring Podcast

Thank you Judy Carmichael, your weekly podcast has inspired me to listen, learn & appreciate each of your guests. WZUM, The Pittsburgh Jazz Channel carries your program on Sundays @ High Noon. I want to contribute to the cause especially before the end of the year to help with the challenge. Many of the podcasts I Re-listen after listening to my jazz station. Recently Mike Renzi & Mike LeDonne were two of my recent favorites. Thank you once again! Merry Christmas 🎄 & Happy New Year, cheers from SW PA
