It's a Jazz thing

You know what is said - Jazz is the teacher. It was time to pull out some Jazz bits, and I thought I'll create a mini-mix out of some favourites. Starting of with the sample friendly Gap Mangione trio - 'Boy with toys' from the Diane in the autumn wind LP. Bit of Stereo Konitz, some Coltrane related (or tributes rather) from Billy Gault and Lateef. Some slamming drums on the Afreaka track, and speaking of drumming, there is only one. Art Blakey from the Holiday for skins volume 1 LP, together with Sabu Martinez amongst others. Heavy!
Finishing of with the always incredible Dee Dee Bridgewater. The title track from the classic LP, it's so nice to pull out that one now and then. So here you go; it's all good.
  1. Gap Mangione trio - Boy with toys
  2. Lee Konitz - Five, four and three
  3. Billy Gault - Mode for Trane
  4. Yusef Lateef - Brother John
  5. Lee Morgan - Afreaka
  6. Art Blakey - Mirage
