Quintessential Jazz

No pretense of ambience in this mix, just straight forward jazz. I came across an interesting list here... Quintessential Jazz Songs.

The Jazz 100 is a list compiled by listeners of jazz24.org & NPR Music. It's kinda fun to read some of the comments because the listeners get very passionate about the list. Much of the list is very recognizable & some of the tracks I'd never heard before, so it was great to dig in & discover music I probably should have known about for a long time.


So this mix is just a quick compilation of just a few tracks from the list, with the exception of the Paul Desmond tune(it just worked perfectly following Take 5 with Take Ten).

Even though this deviates from from the usual ambient I hope you enjoy it nonetheless.

Great selection! Appreciate the Girl from Ipanema, which is an all-time fave of mine (although my neighbors don't agree with me singing to it ;-)

Will check out your other mixes as well.

You might want to add your URL in the mp3-info so I don't have to google you ;-)
