Slim Devices showcases on Jazz legend at the height of Hard Bop
Mountain View, CA - August 1st, 2006 - Slim Devices, makers of the affordable Squeezebox™ and audiophile Transporter™ wireless streaming audio players, announced the latest 'Slim Showcase'. August sees the focus on Miles Davis at The Blackhawk, San Francisco in 1961. As part of the celebration, Slim Devices has partnered with Radioio, a leading provider of DJ driven internet radio station, to add special content and run competitions to win Squeezebox player. The webcaster's radioioJazz station (http://www.radioio.com/radioiojazz.php) will be featured in Slim Devices collection of Internet radio services available free to every Squeezebox owner. Slim Devices and radioio will also jointly issue a t -shirt featuring artwork from the concert poster.
"When asked if I would be interested in a collaborative effort between radioIO and Slimdevices that would allow us to feature one of the most significant benchmark events in jazz - I jumped at the chance," said Dr Mike Matheny, host of radioioJazz. "If you are a fan of Miles' fusion efforts such as 'Bitch's Brew' or 'Amandla', hearing him in the heat of the hard bop era will introduce you to another spectrum of his ability.
"Internet radio represents a great way to explore the world of music." Said Patrick Cosson, VP sales and marketing at Slim Devices. "No matter where you live or how niche your tastes, you're bound to find something new you like out there. That's the beauty of Squeezebox and our new Transporter players. They bring the breadth of Internet Radio and the audio quality of your hifi system together."
This month -long celebration of Miles Davis at the peak of his Hard Bop period is part of an ongoing series called 'Slim Showcases'. Future months will feature the works and concerts of artists ranging from Jazz to Rock, from the 40's to the 00's. The aim is to use today's technology to deliver the best of all music from all era's regardless of location or age. Of course, such a classic gig from San Francisco's famous Blackhawk club was an obvious choice for a company based in the Bay Area like Slim Devices.
