Customer Reviews

Great exploration of jazz's roots and history

I'm really enjoying this podcast. The history of jazz is complicated and (at times) controversial. Arik Devens provides an engaging, thorough review of the music tradition's roots, with well-chosen recordings as examples.


I have been combing through the internet looking for a podcast about this topic for way too long. Just listened to the first episode-so well done considering how much ground you needed to cover- and I'm looking forward to hearing how you'll unravel my favorite subject. Also, the Spotify playlist you're planning on making of each song you highlight in each episode is brilliant and really helpful! Thank you!

Fun and educational

I found Arik's show through his promotion of it on Criterion Cast, and film is definitely the more familiar medium for me. Still, I've always enjoyed listening to jazz despite my lack of familiarity with the nuances and history of the genre. This show is such a great addition and a topic that I've been eager to learn more about. The show is really entertaining, informative, and fun.
