Hey guys,


In this thread i wanted to share my jazz playlists with you.


The first time i heard about jazz was in an interview with Radiohead. They mentioned Bitches Brew by Miles Davis as one of their inspirations. I bought the cd in 1997 but was shocked with the music. Its weird rhythms, harmonies (or lack of) and no song structure. I was used listening to alternative rock like Radiohead and Dinosaur Jr.


In 1998 i was going to concerts alot and my curiosity led me to a jam session in a jazz club. There were four people playing, drums, bass, piano and saxophone. It was then i heard and saw the magic of jazz. They were improvising arround a standard theme and they were really enjoying the jam. Creating 'new' music as they were playing. Since that day i understood what jazz was, but it still took me some more years to finally appreciate Bitches Brew by Miles Davis.


If you want to read more about jazz i can recommend this website:


And now for some jazz playlists i have created, enjoy:

1. Funky Jazz 2. Fusion Jazz from Poland 3. Spiritual Jazz / Free Jazz 4. Cool Jazz inspired by Miles Davis 5. Melancholic Jazz







I hope you find something of your liking here and i'm looking forward to seeing your jazz playlists!

I mostly listen to rock music, but I also like jazz and thought I'd post a playlist of some of my jazz favorites; it's mainly fusion with a few straight-ahead jazz, modal jazz and free jazz tracks as well. I'd greatly appreciate your feedback or suggestions!

Hi Jazzwhatever !

I just came across this post. Great idea !

I have started a playlist about modern jazz piano trio. It might seem a narrow topic but it is actually quite rich and still nicely focused :).

You'll find very famous trio but also rising artist such as the french trio Hard Swing Mango. Hope you'll like it !


Best regards,

Great thread, below is a playlist I'd like to include within it. It's an instrumental playlist featuring smooth jazz as well as a few hiphop influenced instrumentals that may fit within the scope of the genre.

This is my jazz-based playlist I enjoy quite a range of sub-genres so hopefully, you can find something you vibe with.
