BluePort Jazz with Jim Merod is a multimedia website jazz magazine that features current information on jazz recordings, recent and classical, as well as in-depth commentary related to behind-the-scenes activity in the world of jazz.
The jazz web journal premiers high-resolution original jazz and blues recordings in the BluePort Jazz Archive. The site is interactive, downloadable, and highlights advanced multimedia files that combine video, audio, graphics, and scrollable text. In fact, it is the first extensive jazz journal on the web. The focus of BluePort Jazz with Jim Merod is to explore interactions among recording, listening, creating, and interpreting the still fresh reality of jazz: a hundred year old art form that carries a great deal of the significance of twentieth-century experience.
