Your music on Jazz Happening Now

Are you a jazz musician with a new record you want the world to hear? We accept submissions of new jazz for airplay. No record promoter is required to have your music considered. The only requirements: quality, musicianship and originality. Our mission is to support and encourage the creation of fresh new jazz. Your new music could be broadcast and streamed worldwide on the PRX network.

We do not accept physical copies. In the interest of everyone’s safety, your budget, and the environment, only digital submissions are accepted. We accept studio quality recordings, in .wav, .mp3, .mp4, or .aiff file formats, delivered by download. Files must be properly named and accompanied by a one-sheet of information about you and your music. Questions? Contact us through the contact form below. We look forward to hearing your new music.
