A group devoted to the pure joy that was Brownie's horn. In a tragically short career, he left his mark forever on jazz trumpet & on the improvisor's art. Innocence & sophistication in every breath!

    Reorganization is complete for Professor Longhair. The turnover was quite high: 106 of the 200 artists in the connections were replaced, and the music became even more strongly influenced by artists known mainly in New Orleans and less familiar to the rest of the country and the world. After the new connections, there were 503 artists on the Artist Radio (as always, dropped connections remain on the radio), after which I added another 43 related artists to round it off at 550 artists. To see the lineup, check ProfessLonghair's library. Enjoy!

    The biennial shakeup of the connections has been done, with 66 artists out and 66 in. All of the artists removed from the connections remain on the radio, and 25 of the newly connected artists were already in the much larger radio lineup (600 artists). I've added the other 41 and gone on to expand the total lineup to 720 artists.

    I'm proud to have so many musicians as members of this group! And I'm proud of the jazzy group charts...

    Connections are complete! There is a turnaround of about 1/3 in the artists connected, and all of the formerly connected artists remain on the radio. The big news is that I've greatly expanded the Library Bot Radio, which is virtual user IRmembrClifford's library... so you will now hear a full 500 artists in rotation. To see who is on the lineup, check the library of the user above.

    Time to update the connections and the radio! I expect much of the lineup to be the same, but it's good to keep things fresh! No artist will be dropped from the radio, however, so it will just expand to accomodate any new connections. Don't be alarmed if the connections disappear for a short while... they will be back soon, and the radio will still play the usual blissful mix!

    Journal access is now open... I neglected to take it off the restricted status when I started the groups, but that's been remedied. Any member can post now!

    Connections are complete! All 200 are on the radio too. What's next: Gotta get some Clifford links up here, and some artwork, and hook the whole thing up to The Radio Room, and create a group tag... connect everybody's countries, get some forums going, and a few things just for fun...

    123 connections, 77 to go... a sprinkling of contemporary jazz artists in there as well as some classic but undersung artists (some living and playing mostly in Europe, for instance). Radio coming soon!
