Link to more music

To connect with KJAZZ musicians and shows please look for the word 'Gold', where you will find archived shows and links to the musicians that were part of KJAZZ. Since KJAZZ Radio UK formerly ceased functioning in 2016/17 today it's all about having fun while still playing music and continuing support for those indie artists that made KJAZZ what it was and any new artists that want to share their music with KJAZZ and you.  

The aim of this site is to:

1. Allow fans of KJAZZ Radio UK and musicians to reconnect. This is done here and on our Facebook page.

2. Host new shows both for KJAZZ and ALT - X FM and continue to support new indie musicians and what we call our family of musicians.

3. KJAZZ now through its shows promotes Jazz, Smooth Groove Jazz, R&B, Chill, Neo-Soul and World Music.

4. Listen up, do not close the page you are listening to this will stop the playback of the show you are listening to e.g. if you are listening to a show on this page and click another page on this site the show will stop playing. This is on our fix list to see if there is a solution. You can in the interim listen to the shows on MixxCloud, you will find links on the sidebar.


Howard Rumsey Connection 

People used to ask me if I was related to Howard Rumsey when I lived in Torrance Calif. There is a connection between me and him but I ain't telling.  Anyway here is the Howard Rumsey story if you are interested in the West Coast Jazz movement of the 50s, '60s and it all centres around the Lighthouse in Hermosa Beach.
