[Editor's Note: Working Out to Jazz is a new All About Jazz column, devoted to providing jazz playlists for the purpose of working out. For his second installment, Chris Lawhorn's emphasis is on largely up-tempo tracks from a handful of recent releases. Check in with Working Out to Jazz regularly, for new workout music suggestions, as Chris breaks it out for you by Beats Per Minute (BPM).]


For this month's playlist, I've tried to highlight a few recent releases. With the exception of the opener, the rest of the list should have you truckin' along at a run.

On that note, Pinetop Perkins and Willie Smith will get you started with a caveat to prospective suitors; Wynton Marsalis and company expand upon his ever-increasing repertoire—this time with the aid of Richard Galliano; Denny Zeitlin checks in with a fluid, solo piece; Myron Walden continues his exploration of the tenor sax, following a conversion from alto; and Chie Imaizumi takes her 12-piece on a sultry, aptly-named jaunt:

  1. Pinetop Perkins & Willie "Big Eyes" Smith—"Settin' It Off "—113 BPM Joined

  2. Wynton Marsalis Quartet and Richard Galliano—"La Foule"—130 BPM La

  3. Denny Zeitlin—"Oleo"—176 BPM Oleo

  4. Myron Walden—"Happy Feet"—130 BPM Happy

  5. Chie Imaizumi—"Run For Your Life"—154 BPM Run
