A Great Listen!

I’m a big fan of this podcast. Rich Sylvester includes a far-reaching variety of artists and themes for his episodes, and he strikes a great balance between narrative and tunes. If you want to learn more about jazz artists and their sound, you should definitely subscribe.

Just what I needed!

I'm trying to learn all about jazz, and this podcast is GREAT. I especially appreciate the really early stuff. And the commentary is intelligent and thorough without being too much. Love Rich Sylvester's approach. THANK YOU.
