AccuJazz is an all-Jazz radio station designed to showcase the exciting potential of the new medium of Internet radio. It contains over two-dozen jazz channels based on categories of style, instrument, composer, region and decade. Each channel is further customizable by the option to "deselect" artists the listener would rather not hear. A new subchannel is added every week. The variety of channels and their customizable nature makes AccuJazz a jazz radio experience unlike any other. AccuJazz is provided by AccuRadio, a top-10 webcaster with over 300 channels and 400,000 unique listeners per month. Every month, 5 notable new releases are featured on the home page and are featured heavily in the AccuJazz programming. There are over 15,000 songs playing on the many AccuJazz channels, and new music is always being added. The AccuJazz Main Channel reflects the most current jazz charts and is programmed by Lucas Gillan, a working musician and avid jazz fan based in Chicago. Now AccuJazz Internet radio has just launched a new streaming channel devoted to the Bossa Nova style of music originally created by Antonio Carlos Jobim. Listeners can enjoy a playlist consisting of over 600 songs playing on the channel. The playlist includes timeless bossa nova by Joao Gilberto, Charlie Byrd, Stan Getz, Bebel Gilberto, Astrud Gilberto, Dexter Gordon, Joe Henderson, and jazz-tinged MPB (Musica Popular Brasileira) by artists such as Joao Bosco, Gilberto Gil, Beth Carvalho, and Caetano Veloso. Brazilian expatriates such as Eliane Elias, Jovino Santos Neto, Luciana Souza and Claudio Roditi also make up a large portion of the playlist. "Brazilian Jazz" brings the tally of AccuJazz channels to 48, joining other popular channels like "Piano Jazz," "Decade: 50s," "Straight Ahead," and "Jazz Fusion." As with all AccuJazz channels, listeners can customize their experience by pausing, skipping songs, and "deselecting" artists they would rather not hear.
