This time a small tribute to the radio programme Easy Listening. An incomprehensible non-hit by Duke Ellington, some fusion and jazz-rock tracks and a moving Keith Jarrett.
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”.
