'90s Jazz on

1 post in this topic

We're almost done with the decade channels - we'll have to come up with something else soon for new channels. But until then, read about the '90s channel, or just start listening now.


AccuJazz Internet radio continues its periodic roll-out of decade-based jazz channels with the launch of "Decade: '90s," a free, easy-to-use streaming jazz channel playing the best jazz from the 1990s.

The '90s were a time of incredible diversity in the jazz world. It's impossible to tether the decade's jazz activity to any single style, concept, or trend. The one sure thing about jazz in the 20th Century's last decade is that the artists passionately continued to create meaningful music in whatever style suited them. The decade brought us a host of exceptional new jazz talent: Joshua Redman, Brad Mehldau, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Dave Douglas, Stefon Harris, Brian Blade, Avishai Cohen and Jason Moran, along with many others, all kicked off their professional careers in the '90s. These musicians are well-represented on AccuJazz's channel, but listeners will just as likely hear the great work of still-active jazz veterans like Joe Henderson, Tony Williams, Ray Brown, Bobby Hutcherson, Benny Golson, Paul Motian, Roscoe Mitchell and Billy Taylor.

The channel is playing over 1,500 songs from albums released during the '90s, and makes for an eclectic listen including styles ranging from straight-ahead hard bop to avant-garde and Latin to fusion. Much of the music created in the last two decades eschews categorization, drawing on a panoramic view of jazz and other musical traditions.

"Decade: '90s" is the 7th channel in AccuJazz's "Jazz by Decade" category, joining a channel devoted to Pre-1940 jazz and a channel for every decade from the '50s through the '80s. It brings the total AccuJazz channel tally to 47, including such popular channels as "Piano Jazz," "Decade: 50s," "Straight Ahead," and "Jazz Fusion." As with all AccuJazz channels, listeners can customize their experience by pausing, skipping songs, and "deselecting" artists they would rather not hear. Listen now at
