In January this year the new streaming platform jazzed, the world’s first dedicated audio-visual streaming destination for jazz launched it’s on-demand streaming service. Since entering the market, jazzed has proven a huge hit and has fast become one of the most-talked-about new streaming platforms, offering an Aladdin’s cave for jazz, soul and blues fans with an unprecedented array of personally curated audio channels, music videos and documentaries, live concerts, sessions, articles, album reviews and much more.
Available on both iOS and a newly launched Android service, jazzed is setting the standard for the jazz streaming experience with a library of over 5 million tracks, thousands of videos and hundreds of articles. Following a successful launch in Germany earlier on this month, the app is set for a widespread international rollout in 2021 and has also announced a partnership with Sonos, becoming the only jazz streaming service natively built into its system.
Jazzed CEO Jonathan Arendt commented “We’re delighted with the initial response to the app. And it’s great to see how broad an audience base we’re reaching, with jazzed appealing to both seasoned and new jazz fans alike. We’re offering an extension to users’ streaming requirements; complimenting their jazz listening experience with a deep dive into the broad range of ecosystems that the genre has to offer.”
