National Public Radio's "Jazz Profiles"

Jazz vocalist Nancy Wilson is the host of NPR's "Jazz Profiles", a wonderful jazz documentary series. The show ran from 1996 to 2005 and featured many of the best and most influential jazz musicians in history. Wilson hosted nearly 200 episodes of the broadcast. The series and Wilson were recipients of many awards including the prestigious Peabody Award in 2002.

The series is now offered as a free podcast and can be found on iTunes. Each week a new episode is made available for download. I enjoy every one of them and look forward each week to the next release. They are both educational and entertaining and a "must have" for jazz fans owning an iPod.
