“Jazz In The Present Tense!”

Attack Of The Jazzy Jambands…5 Times Each Week on MOJA Radio!

THANK YOU MICHELLE SAMMARTINO! Without you there would be no MOJA Radio!
msmw 131x150 Attack Of The Jazzy Jambands...5 Times Each Week on MOJA Radio!

Medeski, Scofield, Martin & Wood…the ULTIMATE Jazzy Jamband!

There are a few sub-genres or movements that have come along that help define what MOJA (our brand of MOdern JAzz) is really all about and one is the movement I call “The Jazzy Jambands!” Back in the day when rock bands like The Grateful Dead and The Allman Brothers Band took their songs on long, improvised journeys and in essence incorporated jazz elements, the stage was set for what became a major part of what we call MOJA…jambands…and especially those who set out primarily to make jazz.  If you’d like to hear some just listen five times each week to the newest feature on MOJA Radio, ATTACK OF THE JAZZY JAMBANDS! You can hear it at NOON East/9 AM West every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, plus twice on Sunday at NOON Eastern/9 AM Pacific and Midnight EAST/9 PM West as part of the Sunday Specials.  Following The Dead & The Allmans came Phish then grunge from Seattle.  At the same time American Acid Jazz artists like Karl Denson & Robert Walter started attracting the same fans. Those fans began to follow Galactic and other new artists from NOLA, Medeski, Martin & Wood, John Scofield and the great artists of the North West like Skerik, and San Francisco-area groove artists like Charlie Hunter & Will Bernard and so many more! It’s jazz mixed with prog rock and punk, funk and groove, heavy metal and alternative rock. The fans of this music don’t need lyrics, they need the groove and you’ll get it all if you join us for ATTACK OF THE JAZZY JAMBANDS five times each week on MOJA Radio!


Where else you gonna hear Acid Jazz but here? "This Is Acid Jazz," Today on MOJA Radio!

“This Is Acid Jazz,” ONLY on MOJA Radio!

Brand New Heavies3 THIS IS ACID JAZZ, ONLY on MOJA Radio!

The Brand New Heavies…Acid Jazz Pioneers

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 that funky stuff come and get it on THIS IS ACID JAZZ four times each week on MOJA Radio!
