Giants of Jazz Radio

The home of classic jazz

We had a great discussion with Alan Bramwell of Giants of Jazz Internet Radio over future collaborations with RVJ&B. Agreed that we should work together with options around forming a team of presenters for re-launching The Jazz Show on Ribble FM - Matt E & Miles P, and Phil L and Alan Bramwell. Also Sue Bradley expressed interest about promoting RV Jazz Festival/RVJ&B gigs on Giants of Jazz Internet Radio.

Giants of Jazz Radio pride themselves as being an independent station playing uninterupted classic jazz. They play music spanning a classic period in Jazz history that should not be forgotten. Please help them them get more listeners by spreading the word. "We do not take advertising so please help with a donation." So go and listen, there's lots on the website including Jazz Poetry, Jazz Labels, a Radio Schedule, their list of the 100 best jazz albums, a newsletter etc.

 "AWESOME station —— you play so much of the jazz that I really love!! I have been listening for about a week now and I do not want to listen to anything else. I keep you on in the background while I am working and pretty much all of the time, except for when I am sleeping. It is very nice to find a station like yours where I don''t have the urge to change the channel. I dare say that 'Giants of Jazz' is the best jazz station that I have ever listened to!!  Thanks and MUCH appreciation!!"

World War One brought many social changes...

Harlem Hellfighters: The black soldiers who brought jazz to Europe

Saturday 5 January 2019 From 9:21am
Venue: The Grand Theatre, 18 York Street, Clitheroe BB7 2DL Tel: 01200 421 599 Web: www.thegrandvenue.co.uk | Tickets:

World War One brought many social changes - not least, the introduction of jazz to Europe. Thanks to a black American regiment of musicians called the Harlem Hellfighters, the French discovered the joys of syncopation.

More than a century on, US musician Jason Moran is raising fresh awareness of the Hellfighters and their leader, James Reese Europe.
