The JazzBluesFlorida website also provides hundreds of current listings for clubs, concerts and festivals throughout the state (organized by region), along with photos from shows, and video showcases. There is also news about new Florida CD releases, personal recommendations and suggestions, links to important resources including Jazz and Blues Associations, radio and web programming, and educational resources, as well as our blog with current news postings, and much, much more!

With the March 2013 Issue, Jazz & Blues Florida is proud to announce the online magazine's new & improved format with many new features for our readers. For starters, the magazine can now be viewed in more than one mode online: in 'book format' with a page-turner, or in single page/scroll-down format, as well as a full-screen option. There is a magnification tool (top left) to enlarge text and pages. One new feature we find particularly exciting is MUSIC when you open the online edition from your computer! Imagine that - a magazine about music that PLAYS music!! Our February 2013 issue featured a tune by Belmont & Jones we recorded live at Bradfordvile Blues Club. The March 2013 issue features the title cut from the CD "Change Coming On" by Rick Randlett. More on the music feature later!

This new magazine format is in its infancy and will only grow better and better with each issue as we further develop it. We welcome your comments and input, too...
