Who We Are

JAZZRADIO.com was launched in 2009 to bring excellent jazz music to passionate fans around the world. Today we offer over 35 channels of curated jazz music ranging from the earliest days of Jazz, to the swinging sounds of the Big Bands and the classic era of Bebop, through the more modern styles of Smooth Jazz, Current Jazz and today's Contemporary Vocalists. We’ve also curated the best international music on channels such as Latin Jazz, Gypsy Jazz, and Bossa Nova.

Unlike other internet radio companies, we actually have Channel Directors – real people who know good music - for each of our stations. They find the best music in each style and create playlists that give you the music you want to hear. JAZZRADIO.com also specializes in offering these curated channels for niche music genres that are hard to find anywhere else.

In addition to our online listening experience, JAZZRADIO.com offers a full suite of mobile applications for iPhone, Android and Blackberry. Listeners can enjoy all of our music for free with advertisements, or can upgrade to JAZZRADIO.com Premium to hear the best quality sound with no interruptions.


Channel Directors

Jimi King

Jimi is based in London, England and has been involved in music and radio for more than 40 years and has been programming Internet radio since 2001. He is responsible for all of the smooth jazz channels on JAZZRADIO.com, and presents a daily show on the Smooth Jazz 24/7 channel, as well as a live Sunday show with his wife and co-presenter Stephanie Sales.


Dana’s love for jazz began during a history lesson while in high school. Her favorite eras are Bebop, Hard Bop, and West Coast. She once tried playing jazz but quickly realized it was not for her. Instead, she sticks with keeping the Straight-Ahead and Vocal Legends channels stocked with swingin' tunes. Dana encourages everyone to follow JAZZRADIO.com.

Bruno Zani

A musician and systems analyst by day, Bruno confesses that he can’t stay away from music. Playing guitar and bass in a few bands, writing songs, teaching and daily discovering new bands and tracks are some of the ways Bruno stays involved with music. The universe of jazz, blues and rock, from the late 50's to nowadays may define his passion and inspire the Blues Rock channel.

Gary Farr

Gary Farr (pianist, composer, producer, and arranger) is president and founder of Secret Formula Records and leads a Florida-based big band, Gary Farr & His All Star Big Band. Gary was put on the map as a recording artist in 1999 with the debut of his first jazz CD, Lost. He has been curator, programmer and host of several music channels for JAZZRADIO.com since 2007.

Federico Saretzki

Federico is an avid radio producer, blogger, general music enthusiast and collector. Music is always used as a reference in Federico’s day-to-day life; he’s obsessed with creating musical spaces and experiences. When you can’t find Federico behind his computer screen, he may be working on making his next cup of coffee (earphones on as always).

Brad Carty

Brad Carty is a former jazz DJ on terrestrial radio who has interviewed artists such as Dexter Gordon, Milt Jackson, Ahmad Jamal, Buddy Rich, Terry Gibbs, and many other jazz legends. Brad's Piano Trios channel has one rule that is rigidly enforced—acoustic piano, bass and drums—but otherwise embraces everything from Teddy Wilson to The Bad Plus.
