> 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 to our special feature THIS IS ACID JAZZ four times each week on MOJA Radio! 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!

> 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, as well as 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! It’s jazz mixed with prog rock and punk, funk and groove, heavy metal and alternative rock. It’s ATTACK OF THE JAZZY JAMBANDS five times each week on MOJA Radio!

> Every Friday beginning at 7 AM until midnight Eastern time we’ll begin each hour with a classic piece of Jazz Fusion history with our special feature we call IF IT’S FRIDAY, THIS MUST BE FUSION. This Friday, June 3rd, we’ll focus on the marriage of two major musical movements with a special feature we call “SIX JAZZ-ROCKERS OF FUSION!” Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention incorporated jazz in their music though Frank denined it according to jazzers like George Duke who worked with him. Bill Bruford of Yes, Genesis and King Crimson fame made fusion history with his own band Earthworks. Carlos Santana fused rock, with Latin and East Bay funk for his unique fusion style and even collaborated with John McLaughlin. The great Jimi Hendrix dabbled in blues, jazz and instrumental improvisation and jammed with Miles Davis before he died. Tommy Bolin of The James Gang was called by Billy Cobham “his favorite guitarist to work with.” And guitar wiz Jeff Beck was already a world famous rock guitar god before embracing fusion on legendary albums like Blow By Blow, and Wired.  Join us Friday for the music of“SIX JAZZ-ROCKERS OF FUSION”on this week’s edition ofIF IT’S FRIDAY, THIS MUST BE FUSION!
