Once Upon A Jazz

I didn't live in the 50s or 60s, but when I hear jazz songs recorded back then, I want to build a time machine back to one of the golden eras of popular music, where Billie Holliday, Sarah Vaughan, Louis Armstrong were ruling the charts. Now you don't have much chance to listen to those special songs, other than some Starbucks, where you likely never pay attention. Now is the time to pay attention, now is the time to enjoy all the blues,all the excitement,all the feelings of jazz back in time. I also picked a few recent tracks, inc. Erik Truffaz and the lovely Norah Jones, to show that the feeling is still alive in some today.

Disclaimer: I am not even close to having a broad knowledge of classical jazz, but I do like to collect and listen to old jazz records when I have the chance. I'm sure there are a few people out there who have much broader knowledge in this music and era, but that won't stop me from sharing some of the best acoustic tunes that sometimes play in my head.

Thanks for all the love, all the comments, tweets, likes... It's great to see such an attention to jazz tracks as well, I regularly play nu-jazz and all the variants from electronic/hiphop music, it's good to go back to the roots and see how it influenced a lot of music we mix today.
Hedonist, I'm surely up for recommendations! Any sets you especially like on mixloud, or artists/albums/compilations? Thanks once again everyone!

I second the Hedonist! I was lucky enough to enjoy this mix in the fresh air and it was a joy to be introduced to some beautiful pieces I'd never heard before. Thank you. :-)

Can I just say that this is a very good mix of some of the "old classics". It certainly brightened up my morning coffee...(not at Starbuck's)
If you'd like a little assistance in digging a little deeper then I'm more than happy to help.
