Hey all, got pointed to this forum from another one I frequent in Canada, thought I'd share my love of music with everybody.

On April 24th 2006, I got involved in an internet radio station as one of the main dj's. This came out of a long time dream to dj on a radio station, playing whatever I wanted.
The best part about it is, it didn't me cost anything signficant (no more than any other hobby), so there's no ads at all. And, I'm not getting paid to do this either, I'm doing it for fun. And, I'm not a huge talker, so there's no chatter between tunes.
Just lots of tunes from my personal collection (mainly jazz and blues) that streams at 128k, with no compresion, so sound quality is surprisingly good, so I'm told .
If you'd like to tune in to "my stream" with Winamp click http://64.15.147.87:8002/listen.pls
Maybe one day will come where we'll have to start getting paid advertisers to keep the staion going, untill then, I'll enjoy spinning, and you can enjoy listening.

The main radio page with links to 2 other streams can be found at http://www.unityaudio.ca/radio/main.htm

Jeremy Steig/Eddie Gomez - Outlaws [24 bit remaster]

Recorded in 1976. Remastered from analog source.

Jeremy Steig came to fame as leader of his band Jeremy & The Satyrs who were pioneers in the jazz-rock movement. An outstanding jazz flutist, Steig exploited a wide range of performance techniques. In the seventies, he frequently collaborated with bassist Eddie Gomez, best known for his work with Bill Evans, Jim Hall and Paul Bley. Gomez is a virtuoso performer whose swiftness makes him an ideal bassist in small groups. Recorded during a European tour in 1976, "Outlaws" is considered a milestone album in jazz duets. "The session catches the special magic of that oscillating feedback loop created by emphatic interaction between superb performers and a sensitive audience," Downbeat magazine read. It was the now legendary start of a string of duet albums by the flute & bass team of Steig & Gomez.Upload

Bob Degan - Sequoia Song [24 bit remaster]

Born in Scranton, PA and musically educated at Berklee School, worked with Boston musicians before coming to Europe in 1965 where he grew into a household name on the Frankfurt jazz scene. Bob's trio date "Sequoia Song" of 1976 is one of the timeless jewels in the ENJA catalog. A sophisticated interpreter, the charm and attraction of Degen's music are based on an outstanding technique, great feeling and a sublime creativeness. He uses a great deal of space in all he does while probing and pushing with unforeseeable piano lines. Even 30 years after its recording, "Sequoia Song" is among the true miracles of piano trio jazz.

TERUMASA HINO - TARO'S MOOD
ENJA 24 BIT MASTER EDITION

Recorded in 1973. Remastered from analog source. 1 bonus track plus 1 bonus CD (tracks 5-7)

Born in 1942 in Tokyo, Terumasa Hino made his professional debut in 1955. After the great success of his album "Hi-nology" (1969) he performed at the Berliner Jazztage in 1971 and at many other festivals before moving to New York in 1975. Today Hino is a lving legend and the most famous national jazz musician in Japan. Once an editor of Miles Davis transcriptions, his powerful playing in the 70s and his "large, brilliant tone" (Grove Dictionary) have often been compared to Miles Davis' 60s style. "Taro's Mood" is a fiery, high-energy live document of freestyle hardbop that also allows moments of surprising lyricism.

Frank Tusa - Father Time

[img]http://www.enjarecords.com/images/enj2107.jpg[/img]

ENJA 24 BIT MASTER EDITION

Recorded in 1975. Remastered from analog source.

Born in New York in 1947, bass player Frank Tusa worked with Paul Bley (1970-71), Dave Liebman's trio Open Sky (1972-74), Dom Um Romao (1973), Art Blakey (1977) and many others. From 1973 to 1976 he was a member of Liebman's band Lookout Farm that also featured Stan Getz' former pianist Richie Beirach as well as Miles Davis' former percussionist Badal Roy from Pakistan. For the recording of "Father Time", Tusa turned this band into his own studio ensemble recording his tunes only. A bordercrossing journey through jazz ballads and world music visions, this sterling album includes some of the band's most inspired performances and features Tusa's bass as one of the lead instruments. With each tune played in a different instrumentation, this album is a collection of timeless gems.

Kenny Baron - Scratch

[img]http://enjarecords.com/images/enj2111.jpg[/img]

ENJA 24 BIT MASTER EDITION.

Recorded in 1985. Remastered from analog source.

A highlight of the ENJA catalog, this trio recording received the prestigious "Prix Bud Powell de l'Académie du Jazz" back in 1986. "Scratch" is still one of the finest and most challenging recordings Kenny Barron has ever made. A multi-poll winner, Barron has accompanied Abbey Lincoln, Barney Kessel, Chet Baker, Dizzy Gillespie, Ella Fitzgerald, James Moody, J.J. Johnson, Joe Henderson and many others. Sensing Barron's potential as a soloist, Matthias Winckelmann called the pianist in early 1985 to propose this trio recording with bass champion Dave Holland and drum wizard Daniel Humair. Following "Scratch", Kenny Barron did three more albums for ENJA with his quintet. Michael Cuscuna remembers his first listening to this album: "A magnificent revelation. Here was finally the Kenny Barron that was crawling inside the creative but considerate accompanist. Whatever your preconception of Kenny Barron, listen to this album anew."

Charles Tolliver - Impact

[img]http://www.enjarecords.com/images/enj2109.jpg[/img]

ENJA 24 BIT MASTER EDITION

Recorded in 1972. Remastered from analog source. Two bonus tracks.

Born in Jacksonville, FL in 1942, Charles Tolliver started his career in the sixties after studying at Howard University, Washington D.C. Tolliver's bright, rounded timbre on trumpet and flugelhorn could be heard with partners such as Jackie McLean, Horace Silver, Roy Ayers, Sonny Rollins, Art Blakey and Max Roach. In 1969 he founded the quartet "Music, Inc." that worked successfully until the end of the seventies. "Impact" was the most impressive document of this band presenting advanced hardbop statements with grooving vamps and high-energy blowing. Young Alvin Queen even quit his job with George Benson in order to work with Tolliver whom he knew since their days in the Horace Silver band. A charismatic live recording from Munich's legendary Domicile club, this edition offers two thrilling bonus tracks that sound as fresh as they did 35 years ago. Down Beat: Five stars.

Tony Hymas - Hope Street MN

[IMG]http://image.allmusic.com/00/amg/cov200/dri400/i443/i44311oix91.jpg[/IMG]

Review by Alain Drouot
Through one of Michel Portal's projects, underrated British pianist Tony Hymas developed a connection with Minneapolis that resulted in a beautiful and challenging session. To back him up, he recruited bassist Billy Peterson and drummer Eric Kamau Gravatt, a Weather Report alum who had somewhat fallen into oblivion and was still making a living as a prison guard at the time of this recording. Hymas is an extremely versatile musician and composer, as evidenced by "9 Regrets," where he successfully blends romanticism and dissonance. The pianist also has the rare ability to turn a sugary melody into a sincere statement and he can cut the sweetness of a tune verging on sentimentality ("Just Calling for You"). He is at ease when mixing complex rhythmic patterns ("Allamambasalsalala"). His best composition is arguably "Quanah Parker," where the tension is masterfully built before it reaches its breaking point. Gravatt's cymbal work is gorgeous throughout. He always adds appropriate accents and his playing accommodates the various styles of the compositions -- whether it is a free-form escapade, a romantic waltz, or a solemn march. The rich and full sound of Peterson's bass helps fill up the sonic space; he also does it with imagination. The variety of the material and the original treatment it receives make Hope Street MN an effort well-worth checking out.

Biography by Matt Collar
Saxophonist Tia Fuller is an expressive, forward-thinking musician with a bent toward post-bop and soulful, expansive jazz. Interested in music from a young age, Fuller's piano and flute studies began around age three and culminated in her earning a bachelor's degree in music from Spelman College in the '90s. Later, Fuller sought her masters degree in jazz pedagogy from the University of Colorado at Boulder. Subsequently, she found performance opportunities with a bevy of name artists and ensembles, such as Charles Fambrough, Mickey Roker, Ralph Peterson, T.S. Monk, Rufus Reid, and others -- including the Gerald Wilson Orchestra and the Duke Ellington Orchestra. She released her debut album, Healing Space, on Mack Avenue in 2007.
