    Jazz Alley

    The Story of Jazz is the story of electricity tonight. The ability to amplify changed everything in the 1930s. The ability to distort changed it in the 80s.

    Jazz Alley covers the full spectrum of jazz styles from New Orleans to New York, and from Sicily to Scandinavia.  Featuring the best in classic and contemporary jazz, focusing on the curious, quirky, obscure and neglected.
