Jazz America with Russ Davis from 1999-2020 on The Voice Of America!

VOA Plaque

After 21 years, my work with The Voice of America came to an end on 1 January, 2021. Besides my activities beginning in 1978 in jazz radio in the USA and in various world-wide settings, JAZZ AMERICA was the topping on the cake that was the delicious treat of working in jazz on the air. It gave me the chance to hear so much wonderful, inspiring music…meet, interview and get to know personally hundreds of incredibly talented, brilliant and engaging men and women in jazz…travel all over the world to take in jazz events from Europe to Asia, to the Caribbean and from coast to coast in the USA and Canada! Possibly the most compelling aspect of my work was to oversee and present the exciting evolution of jazz in 40+ years from the last two of the 20th through the first two decades  of the 21st centuries!

I was honored to  program and present it beginning on the 4th of July in 1999. The show was two hours long and reached an estimated audience of 126 million listeners worldwide each weekend. It was heard not only on FM radio stations around the world but also originally via shortwave tranmission and on the VOA entertainment service VOA 1.

IT WAS MY GREAT HONOR AND PLEASURE TO CREATE THIS SHOW AND REMIND THE WORLD OF THE WONDERFUL, ARTISTIC THINGS OUR NATION HAS CREATED!VOA Logo Red Jazz America with Russ Davis from 1999 2020 on The Voice Of America!
