Our goal is to fill a void by providing an online meeting-place specifically targeted towards jazz performers and scholars
Boston, MA (PRWEB) January 11, 2008
JazzPlayer.com, "The Jazz Player's Connection" (http://www.jazzplayer.com), is now live. This new professional and social networking web site offers an interactive resource for fans, performers, educators, and students of the jazz genre.
Created by Symphony Publishing (http://www.symphonypublishing.com), publishers of JAZZed Magazine (http:/http://www.jazzedmagazine.com), JazzPlayer.com is an online community designed to foster connections between like-minded members of the greater jazz community. Similar to other social networking destinations online such as Facebook and MySpace, this new site provides members a platform to create and post personal profiles, blogs, photos, videos, and more. "Our goal is to fill a void by providing an online meeting-place specifically targeted towards jazz performers and scholars," says JAZZed publisher Rick Kessel.
Users can search for other members based on a variety of criteria (location, employment status, musical interests) and then connect on a personal or professional level: students can find local teachers, artists and groups can target musicians with compatible backgrounds, jazz enthusiasts can network with other fans, etc. JazzPlayer.com will also feature one of the most comprehensive online jazz radio stations with more than 12 different jazz audio channels.
"We're very excited to be able to offer jazz musicians and fans a forum to share their passions," notes Christian Wissmuller, editor of JAZZed and moderator of JazzPlayer.com. "I'm looking forward to helping the site grow, as we continue to develop new features to better serve our members."
