I loveYouTube, but you have to face it, specific genre sites can be much better. If you want music Imeem may be much better, if you want comedy then go to specific comedy sites like Ebaumsworld and such. Similarly, if you want jazz, go to a genre site like My Jazz Network.
My Jazz Network is basically a very high quality content on demand site, focused on jazz alone. You can listen to anything you like, or listen in on live radios, compilations, you can even buy anything you like in the store.
If you are a jazz addict or someone venturing into this “scary” area of music, I can recommend this site. Beautifully done, you will have access to a huge array of talented artists. I found the sound quality of some radios under par, but with gems like Miles Davis, you’ll soon forget this.
Update: The My Jazz Network website is no longer available. That does not mean that the network itself is not there anymore, only in another form. It seems that the network has made the decision to move to Facebook, create a company page there and run the show from the Facebook social networking site instead.
The page seems to receive regular updates with news related to Jazz in general. This sometimes includes music videos found on YouTube, music albums that have been released, Jazz sessions, websites of interest and more.
Advertising revenue is falling fast across the Internet, and independently-run sites like Ghacks are hit hardest by it. The advertising model in its current form is coming to an end, and we have to find other ways to continue operating this site.
We are committed to keeping our content free and independent, which means no paywalls, no sponsored posts, no annoying ad formats (video ads) or subscription fees.

Ghacks is a technology news blog that was founded in 2005 by Martin Brinkmann. It has since then become one of the most popular tech news sites on the Internet with five authors and regular contributions from freelance writers.
