TomorrowJazz.com Celebrates Ascension Into Top 10% of Internet Jazz Stations
KANSAS CITY, Mo – April 28 – TomorrowJazz Radio, an 24/7 Internet radio station dedicated to future jazz, recently hit the #39 spot in rankings at Live365.com. Live365 is the world’s largest Internet radio network, with thousands of stations and more than 2.6 million listeners a month. The ranking is out of 395 Live365 stations that consider jazz to be their primary genre. While most of those top stations play swing, bop, smooth, and other types of jazz, there are few stations that focus on future jazz such as nu jazz, acid jazz, jazztronica, fusion, and remixed jazz. TomorrowJazz Radio is proud to be a leading online station in exposing these styles.
TomorrowJazz is one-man effort dedicated to exposing artists who are taking jazz into this new century. The goal of the TomorrowJazz web site and radio station is to provide information about exciting new directions jazz is heading toward. The site uses a blog to present news and opinions about recent releases and noteworthy items. The site and station are both updated at least weekly. Visit the site at http://www.tomorrowjazz.com.
TomorrowJazz founder John Hilderbrand is no stranger to the online jazz world. He launched ContemporaryJazz.com in January 1996. It was one of the first jazz sites to be indexed by Yahoo! After working on that site almost daily for five years, he sold it to focus on other projects. Discovering he missed being an active contributor to the jazz world, he launched TomorrowJazz.com in September 2002.
