Featured Freeware: Jazz Radio
CNET News - San Francisco,CA,USA

This free add-on for Firefox and Internet Explorer gives jazz music lovers
something to sing about. Jazz Radio is a toolbar that lets you tune in to
radio stations worldwide that play songs from the genre.

The bar won't wow or disappoint you with its appearance. A few radio
controls allow for fairly quick volume control and switches between
stations. You'll have fast access to jazz stations in locations from the
United States to the Netherlands, so you can listen to fusion, smooth, New
Orleans, and big-band jazz, to name a few. None of the stations tested
missed a beat.
With search functions rooted primarily in Google, quick links to music
articles, reviews, and new releases are easy to reach. You can add other
useful buttons to some Microsoft and Windows programs and then determine
what will actually appear on your bar. Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail, and POP3 users
can get e-mail notifications, for example. Like others in this category,
Jazz Radio has pop-up blocking and weather forecasting on the bar. Packed
with useful features, jazz enthusiasts who don't need the glitz of newer
music discovery methods and don't mind an old school UI won't want to pass
this up.
