  1. So my collection of favourite Jazz albums keeps on growing.

    My latest obsession:

    I have this vinyl on the way:

    I'm really into this too

    I love Jazz.
    It really is the perfect music for late nights and Sunday mornings isn't it?
  2. Love the title!

    Absolutely. Miles is literally the king.

    Mindi Abair is among my favourite artists as well. She is both a singer as saxophonist. I definitely recommend this album to anyone. It literally is jazz in it's core but sugarcoated in pop. A perfect unison:

    Mindi has quite the discography but Stars is a great starting point.

  3. Thanks! I will check her.

    I also just discovered this, yas.

  4. I love jazz too. Naima is stunning. My Favourite Things is a great album and one of my favourites (no pun intended). I still need to explore later Coltrane.

    Ella Wishes You a Swinging Christmas is played on rotation each December.

    It really is the best music for late nights and early Sunday mornings.

    I cannot think of anything better than it's 2:00 a.m., dim lights, a glass of wine and listening to Julie London or Ella Fitzgerald. So calming and satisfying.
  5. This is amazing.

  6. Need mojitos :(
  7. Ella Wishes You a Swinging Christmas is the only Christmas album I play on repeat every year the past decade or so. Don’t tell Mariah.
  8. I do like a bit of jazz.

    It all started for me with the Sade stuff, Absolute Beginners soundrack, Courtney Pine, and then Miles Davis doing the TuTu album...

  9. I love Tutu. In fact, I like a lot of latter-day Davis. After all, we got his sublime cover of Cyndi Lauper's Time After Time as well as Michael Jackson's Human Nature.

    I also love his soundtrack with Marcus Miller for the film Siesta (directed by Mary Lambert who directed several of Madonna's videos such as Like a Prayer).

  10. Chick Corea has passed away at age 79.

    I’m really sad, he was one of those people that have felt like such a huge name in jazz for such a long time. I’ll have to give Return to Forever another spin in his honor today.
  11. He's one of those artists whose work I feel I should know better.

  12. Honestly, I’m in the same boat. I’ve always had a lot of respect for his work but it felt intimidating - Return To Forever is excellent though and worth checking out.

  13. Someone entered a Blossom track in the rate-formerly-known-as-PJOPS, and I loved it. Got a budget comp as a direct result.

  14. Not exactly the same as what you're talking about, but

    Fuckin' bangers. The talent. The mind. The taste. Sexual.

  15. Taken over my life.
