Laid-back Jazz

Internet Radio


" don't have to play a whole lot of notes. You just have to play the pretty ones..."

— Miles Davis

Jazz that’s laid-back. Cool. Elegant. That’s The Jazz Groove.

Among the millions of recordings that make up the almost infinite body of work that is jazz, thousands of magical songs stand out by how they make you feel.

Those inspired recordings exude elegance and sophistication while their timeless melodies cast a spell, dissolving worries and melting away stress. At The Jazz Groove, those songs - jazz's coolest - are our specialty.

The performers, songwriters and producers who’ve created Jazz Groove style music are pure genius. Treat yourself to a meticulously curated blend of jazz spanning seven decades; from national treasures like Miles Davis, Cole Porter, Quincy Jones, Billie Holiday, George Gershwin, Nat King Cole, and Ramsey Lewis to today’s luminaries including Wynton Marsalis, Diana Krall, Kurt Elling, and Joshua Redman. When you listen to The Jazz Groove you’re bathed in a deeply therapeutic, artful collection of jazz.

It takes just one click to experience bliss as you're musically elevated to a better place. But don't take our word for it. Listen to Jazz Groove listeners in their own words. Hand picked. Meticulously curated. Artfully blended. The Jazz Groove's lush tapestry of laid-back jazz is non-commercial thanks to generous financial support from listeners like you (we receive no ad or government funding).

The Jazz Groove is a service of the Foundation to Advance Jazz to which contributions are tax deductible. Our mission is to dramatically expand the jazz audience. According to Nielsen, 99% of music consumption does not include jazz. That's unacceptable for America's most important contribution to the arts. We believe jazz has great potential to reach millions of new fans; our mission is to unlock and activate that audience. We're a 501(C) (3) organization dependent on the support of our listeners to be able to operate.
