TuneIN Radio is a magnificent app that has about every radio station across the country for free , its quite mind blowing. I have it on my iPhone ,not sure if they have it for android. They have jazz stations by state & category(Piano Jazz, Bass Jazz, etc.) Get i the app if you can , you won't regret it!!!! Its not only good for jazz though, I listen to Spanish music/African/Indian/Chinese music across the globe as well as domestic American Music, if you can't find something you like on TuneIN Radio, then you will never find anything you like anywhere .

The Trumpet is the quintessential paradox of all musical instruments; it has 3 buttons and a relatively simple structure and manages to be the biggest pain to any one who attempts to master it. It would be completely rational to avoid this instrument, but the joy this thing with three valves brings me is beyond ration/explanation.
Pandora - some combination of Miles/Wynton/Coltrane/Sonny Rollins & Herb Alpert if I'm working out in the garage or doing yard work. Sometimes Wes Montgomery.
Spotify on the iPhone w/ bluetooth speakers around the house.
I'm weird enough that I like actually owning cd's, organizing them by genre and artist in a huge binder, and carrying them around in my car. I keep all the jewel cases, too.
At work I run playlists on my laptop - Windows Media Player, since I'm too cheap to pony up the $3.99/month for commercial-free listening on Pandora.
Sometimes I shuffle everything, and then being in my office can a bit weird, because the genres can clash. Worst incident I recall in recent history was SRV playing Lovestruck Baby, immediately followed by the Hallelujah Chorus. Shot my wheels off for a second as my mind readjusted. It was rather jarring.
“The minute you get away from fundamentals – whether its proper technique, work ethic or mental preparation – the bottom can fall out of your game, your schoolwork, your job, whatever you’re doing.”
Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.
