Laid-back Jazz

" don't have to play a whole lot of notes. You just have to play the pretty ones..."

— Miles Davis

Jazz that’s laid-back. Cool. Elegant. That’s The Jazz Groove.

Among the millions of recordings which make up the almost infinite body of work that is jazz, there exist thousands of magical songs that stand out because of how they make you feel.

They exude elegance and sophistication while their timeless melodies seem to cast a spell, dissolving worries and melting away stress. At The Jazz Groove those transformative songs are our specialty.

The performers, songwriters and producers who’ve created this extraordinary music are pure genius: From national treasures like Miles Davis, Cole Porter, Quincy Jones, Billie Holiday, George Gershwin, Nat King Cole, and Ramsey Lewis to today’s luminaries including Wynton Marsalis, Diana Krall, Kurt Elling, and Joshua Redman, when you listen to The Jazz Groove you’re bathed in a transcendental and hypnotic blend of music unlike anything you’ve ever experienced.

With one click, enhance your state of mind as we musically transport you to a better place. Our lush tapestry of laid-back jazz is presented commercial free thanks to generous financial support from listeners like you (we’ll thank you with a gift for your contribution).

We’d love to hear from you – your thoughts, suggestions & comments are very welcome:

The Jazz Groove is a service of the Foundation to Advance Jazz to which contributions are tax deductible. Our mission is to dramatically expand the jazz audience. According to Nielsen, 99% of music consumption does not include jazz. That's unacceptable for America's artform; we believe jazz has great potential to reach millions of new fans. We're a 501(C) (3) organization dependent on the support of our listeners to be able to operate.
