The Jazz Playlist (Even For The Uninitiated).

Just thought I'd share a few of my favorite jazz tracks that I've recently discovered or is on my ipod playlist that I think most will enjoy.

>

"Be Courageous" by Thompson Egbo-Egbo.

This one I heard on the radio one Saturday afternoon on a favorite radio show of mine by Walter Venafro.

"Love Is The Message" by Yusef Dayes, Alfa Mist Ft. Mansur Brown

London jazz scene!

"Mirage" by Jon Luc Ponte

Came across this on a Spotify playlist. Somehow I picture Crokett and Tubbs cruising to this on a sunny afternoon.

"Hopopono" by GoGo Penguin

Mercury Prize nominees (and possibly winners) from a few years back. There's strong debate on whether this is jazz or not.

"Come As You Are" by Charlie Hunter.

Jazz bassist extraordinaire Hunter's take on the grunge classic. Depending on your attatchment to the original you'll either love it or hate it. You know where I stand.

"Inner Flight" by Makaya McCraven.

Chicago drummer McCraven is a chop shop artist. Phenomenal drummer that he is, he takes his live shows and remixes them in the studio to awesome affect.

"San Lorenzo" by The Pat Metheny Group.

I've gone most of my life having never heard this song until last week when my "friend" Walter Venafro played him on the radio. It's instantly one of my favorite songs.

"The Eraser" by Christian Scott.

Christian Scott is easily one of the best artists alive. For the uninitiated there's no better place to start than with his cover of Thom Yorke's "The Eraser".

"Lift Off" by Tom Misch and Yusef Dayes Ft. Rocco Palladino.

Came across this while doing a search for Yusef Dayes. Yusef Dayes is one of today's premiere drummers.

"Sniff" by Domi and JD Beck.

Teen phenoms Domi and JD Beck have been threatening to put out an album for over a year now. It's time to stop waiting and just enjoy the NORD Live's that they put out occasionally.

"Spain" and "Departing" by Jesus Molina.

Jesus Molina is an internet phenomenon and for good reason. His keyboard skills are top notch.

Here's two songs from him, one a spectacle of riches, the other more on his Christopher Cross tip if Cross were a jazz musician.

Of course I'm familiar with George Benson and Grover Washington. Will need to research the rest.

Any suggested tracks?
