Free Association - Vol. 4 with Stephanie Byrne

Playing tracks by

Kenny Rankin, Stacey Kent, Elysian Fields, Marc Mac, Towa Tei and more.

Chart positions

This show was 9th in the global nu jazz chart, 21st in the global funk - soul - jazz chart and 41st in the global jazz chart.

Free Association mix-tapes develop as a conversation. The 1st selector sends a tune cherry-picked to suit, and ideally surprise, the 2nd selector who, in turn, returns the favor. An hour or so into this exchange, after unexpected turns and joyful revelations, the two look back at the results of this game of musical tennis-table and decide whether to share it with the world.
The guest of the fourth installment of this series is the shapeshifting Dublin-based selector Stephanie Byrne, whose eclectic mixtapes have been for years among the most-dopamine inducing gems that can be found on Mixcloud. at
Enjoy these groovy cuts which should appeal both to your jazz sensibility and your need to dance these crazy times off. From Stacey Kent to Jaga Jazzist to the tongue-in-cheek music of Gaijin a Go-Go [Pictured] and Uri Nakayama... and much more!
Mondo Jazz's picks are the odd numbered ones Stephanie Byrne's the even numbered ones.
Happy listening!
