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 5 in what has become a powerful 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.
For this Volume we have one of the most eclectic and open minded djs on Mixcloud: https://www.mixcloud.com/TheRebirth/
In fact he actually really surprised me with this mix.
Scottie's parents owned a pub (where they lived also) that featured live Jazz on a regular basis, so he has pretty much been surrounded by Jazz since he was a child. He bought his first record 45 years ago and in fact his first Dj gig was in his family pub 35 years ago and he's collected vinyl ever since.
Please get over to ScottieBoyUk's page and give him a follow.
