This week’s regular show includes a song that justifies the title of the programme.
The connection between George Duke and Thundercat is proven and some traditional hard bop is played. Finally, of course, a number of usual suspects such as Stan Tracey.
JazzNotJazz is a series of unique mixtapes made up of 100 years of jazz recordings, with useful and sometimes not so useful facts. It is also about The Soul of Jazz, so detours into related styles are guaranteed. There are irregularly recurring items, such as “The Unplayed Standard”, “Ellington Train Songs”, “Jazz Cameos” and “More is Better”.
