From Cool to Swing to Neo-Soul and Latin - the Jazz channel on Astro delivers the best of Jazz from over 80 years and from all over the world. Hear the Masters - Miles Davis, Chet Baker, Stan Getz, Wayne Shorter, John Coltrane and many more - interspersed with the new blood in Contemporary Jazz. Names like John Legend, D'Angelo and Joss Stone are no strangers on this channel, representing Motown and Soul, while Acid Jazz favourites Incognito and Brand New Heavies (among others) also make their presence felt.
Latin Jazz gets major airplay through legendary acts like Ibrahim Ferrer, Omara Portuondo, the rest of the Buena Vista Social Club and Tito Puente. Brazil's exciting sounds also shine through the immense talents of Djavan, Luiz Bonfa, Astrud, Joao and Bebel Gilberto, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Azymuth and newer talents. If Lounge and Electronica are your favourite sounds to get into chill mode, look no further. On Jazz we give you everything from The Gotan Project to Air to Groove Armada to Verve Remixes of classics.
It's a mélange of sounds so smoothly arranged, it has to be heard to be believed. Jazz on Astro has garnered die-hard fans of all ages, as you hear Ella and Lady Day and Satchmo and 'Ol Blue Eyes, right next to Corrine Bailey Ray, Jill Scott, Jamie Cullum and Erykah Badu.
It's not unusual for lovers of Jazz to leave the channel on as they turn down for the night, as the mood turns super-mellow from midnight to dawn, only to energize your day again as daylight approaches.
Jazz on Astro 865 - tune in today to feed your soul.
