The project is a brain child or Arkadia’s founder, Bob Karcy, who is a lifelong music lover, musician, and entrepreneur. He has produced over 100 albums and received four Grammy Award nominations.

We’re starting by providing a little sampling of what’s to come.

If you’re here, it’s likely because you’re interested in Jazz. Maybe you feel you’ve never understood Jazz and want to learn more, or perhaps you’re an aspiring musician or a “jazz junkie” like Bob, and you want to dig deeper to experience the music to its fullest.

You came to the right place. We’ll share many insights and tips on how to listen better. Our hope is that this will be the starting point to help you distinguish great Jazz from good Jazz.

The more we listen and learn about music, Jazz in particular, the more we can asses what we hear. Listening is a skill and an art. You can become a virtuoso listener. Gaining this knowledge deepens our understanding, enhances our enjoyment, and enriches our lives.

It is a concept that zooms into the heart of each song and focuses on key musical moments that highlight the unique elements of an individual recording, resulting in a more fulfilling musical experience. It adds clarity and helps demystify Jazz.
