A bit of a game changer in the chillout/lounge genre - this ain't "jazzy" it is pure jazz sound! Mainly featuring classic and contemporary jazz trios with the piano in the focus - a very chilled, relaxed mood all the way through. I included some popular tracks for easier digestation (Ipanema, Way It Is, "Someday..." which is Miles' jazz cover of the "Snow White" Disney movie song). Ahmad Jamal might sound familiar since DJ CAM just sampled this song lately, and his classic Poinciana is covered by Bob James.
nice very nice indeed yjis something compleet different than we are used to hear looks a bit how my old neighbors pim jacobs and rita reys thay where a famous jazz couple so i liked this very much dj jack kandi
Done a restore ...now I can stream a little better.....some big names in this mix and put together very nicely, although suprised you placed this in the chillout section, this more jazzy beats boarding jazz funk but still a refreshing mix. If you like your jazz this mix is for you....top shelf
I've not enough time to let you THE comment you are meriting cause i've changed of work, & I'm Listening your work @ my work & i've not the time BUT I appreciate it, it helps me to concentrate with quality jazzy tracks & a perfect mixing as ever. Thx for sharing, keep YOUR way friend, Cédric
As ever my friend another great mix - and a nice slant on your Modern Jazz Stories series - this one more really focusing on the piano than No. 1, which I really liked (in fact I enjoyed both greatly, but for different reasons).
Two tracks/artists really stand out for me (for personal reasons), though the whole set is effortless mixed as ever:
Bobby McFerrin's "Invocation" - although I don't profess to know his catalogue off by heart, his work is brilliant (10 Grammys testifies to this) and this track in particular. A shame most people will only know him from his 1988 "hit' (I hate that word) "Don't Worry Be Happy", a song which he later stopped performing live due in part to over commercialisation.
Bruce Hornsby (& The Range)'s The Way It Is - remember buying the album of the same name and have always liked this song (pleasantly surprised to hear it sampled by Tupac, which I discovered a while back). Never heard the acoustic version before, and of course Track 11's masterful edit, but was glad to hear it.
All in all another brilliant set from a brilliant musical maestro. While I will never get to the lofty heights of the super skills that these skillful djs on mix.dj reach, the music is a constant source of inspiration, all of which is greatly appreciated.
Beautiful my friend absolutely a delight to listen to. You have all the great modern day artists that I know and love although I have to say that I was not familiar with track 13. Nice work on your two track edits. Thanks for a most enjoyable mix!!
Wow.... This is pure Jazz.. Lot of big there: Bobby Mc Ferrin, Chick Korea, H. Hancock, Bruce Hornsby, George DUke... What a playlist I call it 'Verve' sound! I'm sure you know Verve records. T11, I absolutely enjoyed this mix Many compliments
An excellent example of blue DJ-ing. Inducing a very good mood, soundtracking a perfect day. Some of the tracks remind me of Mike Figgis' songs with Sting for "Leaving Las Vegas", epic soundtrack, epic movie. Quite something you have here, sir All due respect
