@Jpgchief  Thanks for sharing. It's awesome to see another Jazz fan. I hadn't known Tauk had released a new track. Keeping making awesome playlists.

Herman Martin dug into this archives, found a dissonant electro thing and asked guitarist Hans Van Oost to throw some wild jazz solos over the top. It's pretty abrasive when it gets going, in a good way.

Hey, great to see all these playlists...
Thought i'd add mine.  I love Jazz, but i love Rock!  I have a track in here as well called The Funk You See.  This list is guitar the best!


That is a great list! 

IF you have time, check out my track "The Funk You See".  Id be honoured to sit amongst those names
