Smooth Jazzy Vibes
Soulful Jazz Fridays 7pm
Hi, I’m Steve Stevie from Norwich UK
I guess music has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Those early days in the sixties ( I was a very young starter!) listening to the pirate radio stations, before the days of Radio 1. My Dad was a keen music lover, but unfortunately for me, he preferred the Classical variety, but it all adds to one’s education!
The seventies saw me enjoying the prog rock scene, along with the chart pop hits, but suddenly in about 1977 I discovered “proper” music, and my transformation was swift. Buying “The Commodores Live” and All N All by Earth Wind & Fire changed the game for me, and its been Funk, Soul ,Smooth Jazz and Fusion all the way since then.
All my musical activities were confined to listening, until one day in March 2014, I submitted a Top 10 to a station called Love Music Radio (sadly recently closed) and the Station owners loved my choices and asked if I wanted to present a show! After a nanosecond of thought, I said YES, and in June that year The Smooth Jazzy Vibes Show ,presented by a very nervous novice, hit the airwaves.
So, here we are, a few years later, and a slightly more confident presenter is still going strong, and is delighted to be joining up with Ian and the guys at the Jazz UK
On the show, you will hear predominately Smooth or as some prefer Contemporary jazz, with a few dashes of Soul, Jazz funk and fusion.
My favourite artists are many, but to put in a few names, Richard Elliot, Euge Groove, Peter White, Vincent Ingala, Maysa & Incognito, Fourplay, including an all time hero Bob James and many more.
On the show, I’m very ably assisted by the “Voice of the Show” Roxane, who does some announcements, and also chooses some tracks too!
Look out for the 3 from 1, Jazz Funk Classic, Roxane’s Rewind, Slow Jams and One from Two spots, as they are always top quality!
That’s about it from me, so please join us 7-9pm UK Time each Friday, I think you’ll like it!
