We kick off today with our Jazzwise Lockdown Playlist; two hours, 24 minutes of stunning jazz from world-class artists that have featured in Jazzwise. Editor Mike Flynn introduces his selection…
‘Each month I extremely fortunate to get to listen to a huge amount of amazing music – the UK and international jazz scenes really are at peak creativity – which is why the Covid-19 crisis has been so hard for everyone involved in music. So while all gigs and festivals are in suspended animation, recordings are where we can enjoy the art of recorded music, and there’s certainly no shortage of that. This playlist is a real mixture of new discoveries and some favourites from the last year (and indeed, last decade…) and reflects my personal preference for jazz influenced music and electronica with a modern twist. Hopefully those tuning in will discover some new stuff from the UK’s prolific jazz scene – and some older gems, such as Aquarium by Meshell Ndegeocello – and get some real listening pleasure out of this.’
Look out this week for more music that celebrates our Media Partners!
