For our second contribution to All About Jazz's Mixcloud column, we introduce a mixtape series that we've curated since 2016, entitled "50/50." Through these selections we aim to present a comprehensive overview of the artists invited to play at Centro d'Arte through a mix of their music, curated by us, and of music that inspires them, selected by the artists themselves.

The first installment of this series focuses on saxophonist and composer Ken Vandermark, with five tracks taken from albums by his Vandermark 5 and Made to Break bands and five tracks picked by Ken Vandermark himself from some of his favorite records.
