The birthplace of jazz - New Orleans - is featured, with music from the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra and multi-instrumentalist Jon Cleary.

The New Orleans Jazz Orchestra are a touring big band and an arts organisation, led by the young trumpeter Irvin Mayfield. They will be visiting Australia soon with singer Dee Dee Bridgewater, and in anticipation, we'll hear from their 2009 album Book One.

We will also revisit Duke Ellington's work with fellow pianist Earl Hines, as well as the Duke with his Orchestra from the 1951 release Masterpieces.

Jazztrack recordings on the program include more from the Italian trumpeter Enrico Rava at the 2014 Wangaratta Festival of Jazz, plus Tom Vincent recorded in our Melbourne studios.

Hi Greg,
It's a shame to hear that you can't access the shows as streaming on demand after broadcast.
Can you try the link above in this page? Audio is working for us on Chrome, Firefox and IE browsers.

While Jazztrack is now repeated on RN in two parts both on Saturday and Sunday, both episodes are always available in-full on the program page, a couple of hours after the broadcast.

Here's a link to the Jazztrack landing page (also on the right hand side of each page on the ABC Jazz website);

Please use this link to find each week's episode of Jazztrack, and also to listen to the program after each broadcast.

Let us know if these links are still not working.

Thanks for the message,
ABC Jazz.

Hi Mal,
always a great show. Lately it has become frustrating that the show is split over 2 nights on RN and the same show is broadcast on ABC-Jazz. What is more frustrating is that like most other RN programs there is a podcast option. Jazz Track does not have this option and the weekly program stream rarely works in the latest version of the Chrome browser to play on demand. Come on guys, sort this stuff out! If the Music Show (RN) can Podcast their 2hr program in segments every week why can't the producers do the same here? Please organise the website / webpage also (its very fragmented at the moment) love the show, but please sort this out,
regards Greg Nelson
