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. I cannot answer any of these questions or even really tell you what Jazz is. I can tell you how it makes me feel, where it takes me and what it means to me, but best I leave that to the music which does it much more eloquently.

This is Volume 7 in the series and I'm very pleased to have one of the finest Jazz selectors on Mixcloud selecting the first 53 minutes of tracks that define his vision of Jazz and what it means to him. I then follow with 47 minutes of tracks inspired by DD's selections. This is a deep and transporting journey and I take much inspiration from DD's mix and from his mixes generally.

What is even more inspiring though, is that it was a question from DD that first inspired this series and set a fire in me that has only increased in size and heat across all 7 volumes of this series so far.


The Audiofiles

Compro Oro in the house! And Binker & Moses as well. Nice. Beautiful selection, guys.

Dj Mr Lob

Wow, I's so happy you liked this one, I thought it might be a bit avant garden for you, how wrong am I! Thanks again for your support.


That Chico-track is not one of the easiest songs of all...but so happy you digged it! dubbeldee :=

Sandrikas Svobutas

I wish I could have this in FLAC... oh well

DJ Jimmy Mac

Heavyweight Jazziness right here. Loved it. Thought you stepped up to the plate again Rob. DD has some deep crates.

Dj Mr Lob

Thanks for your listen and fed back JM. Was a hard one this one and happy it all turned out well.

Magda Brand (-ODZLJ)

Beautiful bridges built between the selections. Thank you for introducing me to Binker and Moses. Need to buy their new album (Journey to the Mountain of Forever): I just saw Sarathy Korwar (who I find a mind-blowing musician) plays Tabla in that album. It has been a long time since I enjoyed that much a Spiritual- Free- and Avant-Garde Jazz session. Great job, guys.

Dj Mr Lob

Thanks Magda, so so happy you enjoyed this one! Was definitely different to all the others but that's what I love about this series, where each guest takes it and where it then takes me.


It's cool to see the heads really dig this one... D.d'. :=


Deep, brooding, atmospheric, and absolutely gorgeous. Nice one chaps...

Dj Mr Lob

Thanks mate, you got it definitely deep! Yours soon...
