Site updated

Dear readers - this site has undergone some major improvements.

First of all I have now adapted the new look to all elements of the site including the guestbook and the discussion forum which both were sporting the old look until now. The re-design of the site is now completed - hope you like it.

Please feel free to add your comments to the guestbook or participate at the discussion forum (links above) or send me your feedback and let me know what you would like to see on this site.

The most important improvements have been done input-wise. One of my main contributors Brian Soergel will from now on submit first-hand news from the industry in his new column called Brian Soergel's Smooth Jazz Scoop increasing the status of this site within the smooth jazz scene. Check back often - you will hear about it here first!

Besides we have some new writers who joined recently or will soon start to contribute to the site. Among them is Beverly J. Packard with her Berks Jazz Vibes column providing some great concert reviews. More is soon to come from Beverly so stay tuned.

I am in touch with others as well so you can expect a lot more from Smooth Jazz Vibes in the future. If you would like to join the team of writers please let me know.

And finally we have added banner advertising to the site to give the industry an opportunity to reach their audience and provide the site with some revenue. By the way if you would like to support our work we invite you to donate some money using PayPal (just click the button on the front page) - thanks in advance!

On a side note I would like to mention my new engagement at web radio located here in Switzerland. I play my favorite smooth jazz tracks during a two hours show which is broadcasted twice a week. Check it out!

I am really excited how this site develops and thank our loyal readers for visiting here regularly.
