The Cool Jazz Countdown is a weekly survey based on national jazz chart movement, listener feedback and radio airplay.

  • It highlights the Top Ten Jazz Albums of the week within the Traditional and Contemporary genres.
  • Shares the latest information about the artist including biographical information, little known tidbits, and sidemen playing on the project, producers of the CD and background information on the music label.

In addition to the Ten Song Countdown, The Cool Jazz Countdown includes the New Music Feature of the week in which we highlight a forth-coming album release. Then we present the artist to you with our “On the Line” interview segment where we talk directly to the artist. During this segment we discuss their current project, upcoming performances, and other information that will bring a fresh perspective to the artist. Hosted by radio vets Marcellus "Bassman" Shepard and Kyle LaRue as they present the artist to you!
