A podcasting pioneer, love this show.

Appearing on Neon Jazz was like a deep dive into the essence of jazz itself: spontaneous, soulful, and sincerely open. Joe Dimino's masterful hosting fostered a rare, comforting space that allowed for authentic storytelling and reflective conversation, mirroring the very improvisation and connection that jazz stands for.
