Customer Reviews


Informative to a fault yet the music was very entertaining and gratifying and left you wanting more.


This is the hippest program on iTunes. As a Jazz fanatic, I cannot get enough of this show! It is simply delightful to learn about different jazz musicians and the periods of their musical careers. I really liked the one on Max Roach in particular, it very much helped me as a pianist understand what role the drummer plays in jazz and how Max innovated in that respect.

One thing I find crazy is that you haven't yet featured Charlie Parker! I'd love to hear some Bird, Dr. Vernick!

Entertaining and Informative with Real Jazz !

This is a great podcast! It is just the right length with a great balance of information and real jazz. Much of the music comes from Dr. Vernick's own extensive collection of currently unavailable lps. As a casual listener (not scholar) of jazz this continues to be both entertaining and informative. I really enjoy the mix of biography and history. Dr. Vernick places the individual in his/her world but also tells you about the music, how it has evolved, and how it all fits together. I only wish there were more podcasts. If you want to learn about some jazz greats and hear their music this one podcast to subscribe to.
