SoulandJazz.com was originally conceived as a streaming internet radio station. Since opening in 2009, it has been transformed into a commercial-free podcasting service, and now hosts over 880 shows with 30 new podcasts (in the style of a radio show) uploaded every month along with 15 bespoke record label Showcases.
One of the highlights of their programming is the fortnightly European Jazz Union presented by Mike Chadwick, which showcases new jazz emerging from the continent.
All shows are downloadable in HD quality.
Soulandjazz is adding a new iPhone App: It’s Showtime! which already hosts over 30 streamed Showcases from Mike Chadwick, Chris Philips (Jazz FM) and Brian Hurst (SoulandJazz.com founder). The App is free to download throughout February and 69p thereafter. The Showcases are free.
A version for Android is in development, and is set for release in March.
