Growing up with trad jazz in Europe I still enjoy this type of music.
One can't go past the Dutch Swing College Band but my favourite band is Chris Barber and his Jazzmen. This gives you an indication of the type of program to expect from me.
I do play the older bands like Jack Teagarden, Humphrey Lyttelton, Sidney Bechet with a few big bands thrown in. My favourite being Benny Goodman. I have a good selection of Australian trad jazz records from Graeme Bell to the New Melbourne Jazz band.

Maurie Besgrove
I like various types of jazz, especially instrumental, but not very much of the highly technical improvisational playing.
I particularly like the modern jazz of Don Burrows, James Morrison and Bob Barnard and their associates and older music of performers such as Dave Brubeck, Kenny Ball and Acker Bilk.
Other jazz types I like and present are nostalgia, traditional, Dixie, swing, big bands, Latin, gospel, blues.

Gary has been doing his 'Blues With Attitude' show on 4TTT since 2018 and is doing his best to make 4TTT the blues capital of Queensland.

Gary's blues show is streamed around the world & he has a devoted following, not only in the Townsville region but in many countries around the world.

The theme of his blues shows is to play tracks not only from well-known artists & bands but from artists & bands that listeners may not have been heard from before.

I like various Jazz and Blues especially vocals and instrumental like saxophone and guitar.

I particularly like the old and modern jazz Bossa Nova. Cover vocals of Sarah Menescal, Simona Kopmayer  (Australian singer) Saxophone instrumental will be my all time favourite Kenny G. And all the new You Tuber saxophone players like Luis Graziatto and many more to mention.

I like blues as well as presenter of Blues program. This type of genre music can be performed and combined with Jazz which is unique and very nice to listen to.
I particularly like the new blues artists and vocals  eg. Joe Bonamassa and combined with Bert Hart vocals, Eric Clapton. B.B.King and Gary Clark Jr.
