Discovering Music – Meet Jazz, Your New Best Friend

Imagine you’re at a party, and every guest represents a style of music. 
 
Pop hogs all the attention, dancing up a storm as usual. (Maybe you’ll join in later, after a few too many drinks.) 
 
Rock and Hip-Hop strut around with attitude, looking for trouble and fun (in that order). Interesting, but that’s just not your vibe this evening. 
 
Classical is off in a corner reading a book, while R&B reeks of cologne and flirts with everyone in sight. No thanks, guys. 
 
But wait… Who’s that lurking on the fringe, so low-profile and stylish, with a twinkle in the eye? 
Oh yeah, it’s Jazz! 
 
You’ve always wanted to meet them. You’ve heard great things, but they’re just so intimidating. 
Well, if you’re finally ready for an introduction, Stingray Music is the right place to be. 
 
Jazz is rich, charming, fascinating, and eager to meet you, too! 
 
So, where to begin? 
 
Break the ice with one of our Top Five Jazz Channels:
