JJazz.Net is an all-free high-quality audio internet music station. It is based on the keyword JAZZ and 12 concepts deriving from it. Engineer and musician Nobumasa Yamada recorded the release show for JiLL-Decoy association’s ”Lovely Cafe Lounge” held in JZ Brat on April 14 using PreSonus mobile recording system.  Here is an exclusive interview with JJazz.Net’s Chief Director Mr. Higuchi and JiLL-Decoy who rapidly is going up the iTunes Jazz charts.

JJazz.Net is an internet radio station that started streaming in 2000, but most people didn’t have enough bandwidth to support streaming back then and we obviously started a little early. However, in these past 5 or 6 years, the foundation of internet has evolved quite a bit and thus internet radio has become very popular. Our focus has always been on high quality audio, but we couldn’t go anything above 16Bit 44.1kHz when the only available source was the CD.

By trying to achieve better audio quality than CD, we naturally came to the idea of live recordings. That’s how we started doing our very own 24Bit 96kHz recordings. We knew we wouldn’t be able to stream in 24Bit 96kHz, but we thought something that is compressed from high quality audio must also sound pretty good. Our other aim was to introduce tracks that are recorded onto a CD but in a live environment, because we feel that sometimes, live performances can say so much more than a studio recording…

I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues? A small number of my blog readers have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any ideas to help fix this problem?

This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
