Free Association is a new series of collaborative mixtapes curated by Mondo Jazz in association with some of the finest selectors on Mixcloud.

Free Association mixtapes develop as a conversation. The first selector sends a tune cherry-picked to suit, and ideally surprise, the second selector who then, in turn, returns the favor. An hour or so into this exchange, after unexpected turns and joyful revelations, the two look back at the results of this game of musical tennis-table and decide whether to share it with the world.

The guest selector for the first instalment of this series is Magda Brand, whose refined musical taste is second only to her passion for good music and warm outlook on life.

Mondo Jazz's picks are the odd numbered ones; Magda's the even numbered ones.

Happy listening!

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
