Folks…Denon (yep, the great electronics maker) is 100 YEARS OLD!  It’s hard to believe…I thought the light bulb was only created yesterday…but as part of their celebration they have done a bunch of interviews with various people who’ve used Denon equipment in the past and they asked me to be involved.

“Words & Music” Saturdays on MOJA Radio

Pat Metheny NEA JAZZ MASTER with Russ

Every Saturday, we’ll give you “The MOJO behind the Music” we present our weekly feature WORDS & MUSIC on MOJA Radio.

Join host Russ Davis each week as he travels the world with microphone in hand to talk to the greats of MOJA to find out what their latest work is all about, how they feel about the music in general, the inside stories about their lives and careers.

It might be a special theme with a number of artists or a focus on one artist for the entire day.  Maybe you’ll go with Russ backstage to a New York City jazz club or around the grounds of one of the world’s great jazz festivals.

Interview segments followed by music will begin each hour from Noon through Midnight Eastern time (9 AM-9 PM Pacific). Join us each Saturday for MOJA Radio’s exclusive feature WORDS & MUSIC.

“If It’s Friday, This Must Be Fusion” on MOJA Radio

Chick & Herbie 2015

Here on MOJA Radio we believe that MOJA begins with the electrification of jazz in the 1960’s and 1970’s so on Fridays we honor that fact as we present our special feature we call IF IT’S FRIDAY, THIS MUST BE FUSION.

Every Friday beginning at 7 AM until midnight Eastern time we’ll begin each hour with a classic piece of Jazz Fusion history and give you the history about the music and artists about this controversial era in jazz history.

If you remember the Ken Burns “Jazz” series on PBS then you know they pretty much dismissed Fusion as an afterthought and hardly acknowledged its importance. On MOJA Radio we honor that moment when the music became electric, the rhythms changed and all the influences from around the world combined with the original jazz concept to create a new form of jazz that brought millions of new fans to the music.

You’ll hear electric Miles Davis, Return To Forever, Weather Report, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Herbie Hancock, Jeff Beck, George Duke, Jean-Luc Ponty, Frank Zappa and so much more each week on IF IT’S FRIDAY, THIS MUST BE FUSION.

“Live @ MOJALand” Wednesdays & Sundays on MOJA Radio


Each week here on MOJA Radio, we cordially invite you to join us inside the world’s only imaginary jazz club for rare, live performances by some of the greats of Modern jazz on our weekly feature we call LIVE @ MOJALand.

You’ll hear it four times each week here on MOJA Radio.  Listen Wednesday morning at 9 AM ET and again Wednesday night at 9 PM East/6 PM West, and twice again on Sunday at 11 AM & 11 PM ET, as part of the Sunday Specials.

“The All New Music Revue” Thursdays on MOJA Radio

Join Russ Davis as he gives you an hour of nothing but the freshest MOJA on THE ALL NEW MUSIC REVUE every Thursday at 9 AM East/6 AM West with a replay at 9 PM East/6 PM West, and twice again on Sundays at 10 AM & 10 PM ET as part of the Sunday Specials.

Each week, dozens of new releases come into the MOJA Radio offices and Russ Davis listens to all of it to pick out the best new music.  Jazz from the past is always great to hear and it’s the backbone of MOJA Radio, but for jazz to progress we’ve got to keep our ear to the ground for the new voices in MOJA and that’s what this show is all about, as well as hearing the new work of our old favorites as well.

So, if you want to keep up with all the newest MOJA, just listen to THE ALL NEW MUSIC REVUE four times each week!

“This Is Acid Jazz” Tuesdays on MOJA Radio

medeski 300x166 "Monday with the Masters" on MOJA Radio

Medeski, Martin & Wood with Russ

In the mid-1980’s when fusion had faded and the softer side of things began to permeate the radio with the emergence of contemporary jazz, a fun, up and funky trend sprang out of the clubs and concert halls of England that brought new life to jazz.

If you’d like to hear some just listen four times each week to the newest feature on MOJA Radio, THIS IS ACID JAZZ!  You can hear it twice every Tuesday at 9 AM and again at 9 PM EST and twice on Sunday’s at 9 AM & 9 PM EST as part of the Sunday Specials.

The phrase Acid Jazz came from the famous English DJ Gilles Peterson and each week you’ll hear not only the music of the English groups he discovered but artists from the USA and around the world that joined in on a movement whose repercussions still reverberate today and the words of Mr. Peterson himself!

So if you can’t get enough of the funky stuff come and get it on THIS IS ACID JAZZ four times each week on MOJA Radio!
