Orchestra Nazionale Della Luna
Intnroducing the Orchestra Nazionale Della Luna.  Sounds Italian, but nope, two Belgians, a Frenchman and a Finn.  Exciting, original and fun.  Plus new music from Wadada Leo Smith and much more.  Great music this week!

Image This week, meet a terrific new pianist and composer from Denmark, Soren Gemmer.  His new recording, The Lark is the feature release.  And listen for Mads La Cour on trumpet and fluegelhorn. I was very taken by his sound. (There'll be plenty of Mads' music in future shows.)

ImageJames Brandon Lewis, a terrific young saxophonist, leads off this week's show with music from Days Of FreeMan, filled with the influences and sounds of his youth.  You'll also hear music by Italian bassist Mauro Gargano which tells the tale of the rise and fall of boxing champion Battling Siki.  New Japanese pianist Naoko Sakat makes her One Man's Jazz debut as well.  Lots of good stuff.

Soprano saxophonist Rob Reddy has just released another milestone recording, Citizen Quintet. It's most impressive. Just one of the highlights in this week's show.  There's some William S. Burroughs too.  Really.

Sound Files Removed But Still Available
Monday, 04 November 2013
I've deleted several music files to free up some web space.  If you find a particular show or segment on this site  that won't stream, contact me. I likely can send it to you.  At the moment I'm keeping around the last eleven months' worth of shows available through this site.


Taint Radio going but One Man's Jazz to continue

As of July 1, 2016 taintradio.org will no longer be available.  After 8 years of demonstrating successfully that independent and unstructured programming -- unfettered by suits, hired guns, and managers -- works.  We at Taint Radio are sad to see it go, but equally proud of what we've been able to accomplish.  Major props to Bob Rogers, the creator and heart of Taint Radio for his dedication and passion.  We, the programmers, salute you. And we salute you, the discerning listeners to Taint Radio, for your support.    One Man's Jazz will continue at this website with new presentations weekly.  Keep tuning in.  Tell your friends!  More news to follow.  



Presenting Phase 3 of One Man's Jazz.  First, twelve and a half years at CKUW, then Taint Radio for four and a half, and now this website will host the show.  The goal is to keep the music rolling, with a new presentation weekly.  You'll notice a few tweaks to the way the playlists are presented as well.   And yes there's now a Facebook page for One Man's Jazz. Watch for weekly posts there with news about the show, playlists, and other interesting items.
