What Is Jazz? Vol.1 with Jimmy Mac

What is Jazz? Is it freedom, is it tradition, is it alive, does it continue to evolve and thrive or is it an art form stuck in time? I cannot answer any of these questions or even really tell you what Jazz is. I can tell you how it makes me feel, where it takes me and what it means to me, but best I leave that to the music which does it much more eloquently.

This is the first installment of a series in which I invite my favourite Jazz selectors to curate 45 minutes of tracks that define (albeit briefly) their visions of Jazz and what it means to them. I then attempt to provide my own 45 minutes inspired by their selections. This is a powerful challenge for all involved and will be a deep and transporting journey for the listener as well.

First up we have my good friend and one of the best Jazz selectors around, DJ Jimmy Mac.
