I'm not a DJ, but a producer and manager from Paris, France, and I created some pages on the site airplaydirect.com.
Is someone here using their services and downloading songs for airplay ??
Thanks in advance for your answers !
I have Artists contact me through musicsubmit. As a broadcaster, I find this a huge help for most genres. But there are not alot of Jazz Artists on there as yet. (Although Paul "Sequence" Ferguson found me there. * Thanks Paul hehe*
I also use Airplaydirect , programs like this that give the Artist the choice of whom to contact and who not, are invaluable to us. They give the Artist control, and they give the radio/media access to Artists who already know about us and are interested already in airplay. It sure cuts down the time for both Artist and folks like me doing hours and hours of searching .
I would love to get played on radio in France - my second home - but I'm not at all sure how this all works...........you can see what's happening with me on my page and I just started to
get some radio play in the US - but maybe you'd tell me what I need to do to use 'airplaydirect'.........merci bien Pascale
J'ai une site a airplaydirect, mais malheureusement je ne le trouve pas bien utilitse par les DJs. J'ai beaucoup de success quand j'envoie une e-mail aux DJs moi-meme. C'est plus demode, mais ca marche beaucoup mieux.
I hadn't heard of musicsubmit, but I will defnitely check them out now. Like some other folks have said here, I wasn't that impressed with the the service from Artist Direct. I tried it, but got a bit frustrated with it and lost interest.
The Jazz Network is exactly what the title suggests, a place where you get to mix and mingle with those who have not only an appreciation for Jazz but a forum to hear new up and coming artists as well. I've hooked up with so many of my old friends that I've lost contact with over the years here and it's been a great place to meet folk, appreciate good music and Musicianship. What an incredible idea!!
Grady Tate began his jazz career as a much-celebrated drummer, backing such icons as Wes Montgomery, Ella Fitzgerald, and Quincy Jones. Tate has since traded in his skins for a microphone at center stage, where he delivers smooth and soulful baritone vocals. With pianist John di Martino, Tate sings "Everybody Loves My Baby" and "Where Do You Start."
He was a soulful reedman, an amazing talent scout for decades and a bandleader of one of the country's most popular acts. Born in 1913, Herman led "Thundering Herds" that were both big draws and well-respected by the likes of Igor Stravinsky. Here are five recordings which still sound fresh today.
Hear passionate improvisation across borders on Colombian harp, Argentinian bandoneón, Venezuelan cuatro and vibes from the U.S. In a set with Castañeda, his trio and special guests perform at the Americas Society in New York.
Ever since he started becoming one of the best alto saxophone players in the world, Zenón has drawn from his upbringing in Puerto Rico. But, like many Puerto Ricans, Zenón lives in New York — where his quartet of 10 years has finally been invited to play the Vanguard. It presents new music in concert.
