Smooth Jazz

Hel­lo and wel­come to Vir­tu­al Com­mu­ni­ty Radio. Today, Weds 10 March, we are fea­tur­ing a col­lec­tion of Smooth Jazz pieces to relax with and enjoy in these dif­fi­cult times.

The major­i­ty of pieces are instru­men­tal and in gen­er­al the music is on the Jazz end of the New Age spectrum.

Today we are fea­tur­ing the 2001 album Aart by Acoustic Alche­my, with a track dur­ing every hour through the day.  This album was nom­i­nat­ed for a Gram­my for Best Con­tem­po­rary Instru­men­tal Album. The his­to­ry of the band goes back to the 1980s and although the orig­i­nal founders were from the UK, they were hard­ly ever heard there, apart from a track of theirs being picked up by the BBC as the theme for the TV series Gar­den­ers’ World. You can learn more about the band here.

Today you also have anoth­er chance to catch Episode 3 of our ongo­ing series Where’ve You Been, where Cale­do­nia Sky­tow­er and Elrik Mer­lin look at inter­est­ing places to vis­it and things to do around the Sec­ond Life Grid: it’s on at 12 noon and 4pm Pacif­ic Time (20:00 and 00:00 UTC). You can also hear Engines of Our Inge­nu­ity from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Hous­ton at 12 noon, 4pm, 8pm and mid­night UTC (4am and every four hours there­after Pacific).
