What is Jazz?
Is it freedom, is it tradition, is it alive, does it continue to evolve and thrive or is it an art form stuck in time.
This is Volume 2 in a new series where I invite my favourite Jazz Djs (and Non Jazz Djs) to select 45 minutes of tracks that defines (albeit briefly) their visions of Jazz and what it means to them. I then attempt to provide my own 45 minutes inspired by their selections. This is a powerful challenge for all involved and will be a deep and transporting journey for the listener as well.
For this episode we have one of Italy's finest Jazz selectors Toni Rese. Toni is a prolific collector of Jazz LPs and maker of mixes, all of which I must say are great. Toni has been into Jazz since the 1980s and states that to him, 'Jazz Is Life'.
This mix is a special treat as it's all Italian Jazz. Toni introduced me to Italian Jazz so I have matched his first 45 minutes of the mix with Italian Jazz he sent me.
