The Jazzcat will be on RISE for 3 Hours of non-stop creative cerebral jazz menagerie for the cranium and the soul!  The music will be beautiful and organic as I will paint and splash the canvas with potent fragrant sonic sensations. We will have 3 wonderful hours to stretch so stay up with me!

Mark Maxwell, the humble facilitator of the sounds of the creator will be taking a night off  and has been grateful enough to bequeath the controls of the mothership to me!


If you want to discover the best in jazz that the rest of the radio world has not figured out, tune in to Mark Maxwell every week for a 3 hour excursion into the Deep! I do not have the opportunity to spin jazz on the air that often so please stop by and have some fun with me!

See you there!

    Hey El-D! Just thought I’d stop by to send you a shout out and give you some energy for your 3-hour journey. Of course, I know you won’t need any energy because you’re going to be wired-up! Keep up the good work, man!

  4. Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start
    my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for
    something completely unique. P.
    S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
