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?

For this episode I'm very pleased to have one of the best producers of mixes on Mixcloud, Mol (https://www.mixcloud.com/mol_/) as a guest. Whether it is his 'Soulful Hip Hop', 'Loungin', 'Soul Food Course' or 'Jazzy Hip Hop' series of mixes all are fantastic and draw massive numbers of listeners.

He blew my mind with his submission which takes up the first 46 minutes, followed by my response. I hope I did his set justice as it was just so so good and contained all the elements I love in Jazz.

Get over to his page and give him a follow, but be prepared to have your mind blown if you do!

Please help spread the word about this wonderful series by sharing and reposting. Your support is invaluable in this rather crowded online universe!

Thanks mate!

Very strong set guys! Loved the modern feel of it. The first half highlights for me were the Moodyman track as well as the tune from Moses Boyd. Second half highlights include the starting track from Abstract Orch as well as Miles Mosley. Great stuff all the way through, thanks!

Great you got to this one and I appreciate you checking out the series in depth and your feedback. I guess the whole idea is to show where Jazz has been, going to, what it has influenced and what influences it. I have tried a lot across this series to introduce newer tracks and tracks that are not strictly 'jazz' but heavily indebted to it.

Great selections Guys and I LOVED the vibe ! Thanx.
I noticed that Mister Mol used the same song to introduce his set that I used to introduce mine in the What Is Jazz? Vol.13... great choice ;)
