Jobim was one of the great composers of the jazz world. He was a fine pianist and guitarist, a superb arranger and was one of the founders of the bossa nova craze, which swept the United States in the early 1960s. Still, it is arguable that most people will not have heard of him, but then they will have heard of at least one of his tracks, "The Girl from Ipanema". Two versions are present here, including the classic with Astrud Gilberto. This is a tune, which no summer should be without and even in the depths of winter can make you feel the Brazilian balmy sun on your soul. For all Jobim's delicate harmonies and skilled structure of his songs his hall mark is the sultriness of his numbers, even when about loss and regret. Also in this collection are "Desafinado" and "Corcovado", both featuring Stan Getz and Joao Gilberto. Here is 60 minutes of hot bossa nova. Play this and very soon, no matter how stiff you thought you were at dancing you'll discover that you've got ball bearings for hips. --Phil Brett
Advantages: Some true classics. Disadvantages: None of note.
...I suppose when most people think of Queen albums, Jazz is not one of those that immediately springs to mind. But this Platinum selling album is quite a wonderful piece of music and in my eyes has always been one of the best. It is a mixture of styles and tunes and has the rough edge of the earlier albums.
We kick off with the underrated and wonderful Mustapha. A gentle beginning which...
Advantages: Great Music, Very Clear, Relaxing Disadvantages: Limited Broadcasting,
...This radio station is very good; it has soul and jazz mainly. It has very good programming and good signals, if you live in the North East (100.4), or the South West (102.2), of England. The site is great if you just want to chill after a hard day.
Reception = 9/10
The reception of this radio station is very good; the only problem is that it is quite limited to broadcasting...

Review of 102.2 Jazz FM
Advantages: Very cool, majority of tracks outstanding Disadvantages: Not to everyones taste
...long), sultry vocals and a bit of Bossa Nova, bit long, not the best track on the album.
3. Know You Know
Loveley, funky, soul jazz combo, Simon Cowell would say hotel lobby music, i say, smooth.
4. F**k Me Pumps
Prbbaly one of the better known songs on the album, quite 'now', very groovy and a bit of an ironic look at the dating, player, getting together, breaking up scene.
