The Cool Jazz Countdown is a weekly survey based on national jazz chart movement, listener feedback and local radio airplay. It highlights the Top Ten Jazz Albums of the week within the Traditional and Contemporary genres. It's hosted by radio vets Marcellus "Bassman" Shepard and Kyle LaRue as they share 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.
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.
