Conscious Planet Radio is pleased to announce the launch of the planet’s greatest Jazz channel JUST JAZZ.
Just Jazz is not your ordinary Jazz radio station. We don’t just play endless streaming tracks of music, we actually talk to you about the artists, and who accompanies them, and we read between the liner notes to not only tell you when the song was recorded but a little bit about their life too, because many of our hosts have not only met the artists but may have recorded with them.
Just Jazz hosts are jazz musicians first and radio announcers second. At Just Jazz we believe that the best people to tell you about the music are the people who have lived and are still living the music. We are proud to say that we have the most knowledgeable hosts of any Jazz station anywhere on the planet. We guarantee it! Best of all it’s entirely commercial free with no am/fm static or drops.
From Brubeck to Basie, from Ella to Esperanza, just the clear digital sound of Jazz.
Just You, Just Us, Just Jazz!!
The Sunday Jazz Brunch with Allan Holender
What more can we say! A Sunday Brunch Buffet “OVER EASY” to feed the hunger of a bygone era when Kenton and Christie swung, The Four Freshman sounded like one, and you could actually hear every single word that Billie sang. Ella, Louis, and the Duke might drop by as well, so grab a cup of java, put your feet up and sit a spell.

Jazz with Lazz /Colin Lazzerini
The kind of show Colin would listen to: with content robust enough to please and surprise the informed palate – neither too esoteric as to become marginalized, nor veering towards the inoffensive pablum of the ’smooth’ menu – yet still attractively accessible to the casual listener able to respond to beauty and vitality and only too ready to find some kind of unexpectedly welcoming home on the dial.
